Mildred Takes A Trip 1
I've had very mixed feelings about posting Mildred's photo album. This one's a bit different for me. I didn't buy it for the photos, I bought it for the album itself. It's very small, let's say little bigger than a postcard, and the pictures are a very odd sort, some interesting, and some not so much. Too, while most photo album are easy to disassemble, making it easier to scan the images, that isn't the case with this one. I was afraid to untie the leather ribbon, and I was also afraid to open the album and lay it out flat on the scanner. In the end, I took the risk, bent it open and scanned. Finally, there's only one photo per page, so there won't be any full page scans to show position.
I suspect that Mildred was the photographer and isn't seen in any of the photos, but I like to think that that is wrong, and that Mildred is the young lady in the center of the first snapshot. Another guess, Mildred and her family have taken a trip to see a son and brother who was in the United States Navy. That tower in the background is clearly from a battleship. It's the second photo that I really like. Two people are well hidden behind the flowers while maybe Mildred is off to the side, clearly visible.
More to come, click on Mildred's album in labels to see the rest. At least, once I get them posted.
