Today I am 35 years old! :) I don't mind getting older, atleast thus far. I'm sure once I hit 40 it'll be a harder pill to swallow.
So for my birthday, here is another image from the album I mentioned before. A page shot from the scrapbook, this time the ladies were in Beirut.
I just find these so interesting!!
The four ladies from the post below are at the very least best of friends. I have no proof that any are sisters, what I do know is that I have a large photo album dated 1900 from a trip they took through Europe and the Middle East. Photos from Germany, England, Italy, Greece, Jerusalem... it is fabulous! There were six ladies that went on what must have been the journey of a lifetime, the other two weren't in this portrait, but it seems to have been taken quite a few years before the trip. I have the album, although it'll be a very complicated mess to get the images on my PC. My scanner is up high and the images can't be removed from the 5 pound album. I'll figure it out some day when I am bored and I'll show you more glimpses of their excursion. Absolutely marvelous.. I can't even imagine how excited they were to strike out, by boat, for Europe. The images here I took with my camera... these are for PERSONAL use ONLY. Thank you.
The above, left image is from the day they left port.. June 2nd, 1900. The boat image was taken June 11th.
A large photo postcard from Naples, Italy. When I lived there as a child, the laundry still hung between the buildings like that (and I'm sure it still does today).
Above is Conway Castle, North Wales..
The last image is of the six of them at the Custom House in New York.. there was no return date, but the last recorded date was August 30th, and there were many pictures of England after that in the album, so I am assuming sometime late September.
