This layout is of a photo from an album my mother did during her teen years through her early years of teaching. The lack of journaling in this album leaves many unanswered questions for me and this is true of this photo. My own hidden journaling is on the back of the tag, a beautiful gift from my secret sister. Because some of it is too personal, I will not share it here but wanted my children to know the stories my elderly aunt told me of my mother who never told me some things I really would have loved for her to have shared with me. I told of my regret at not asking more questions of my mom and of my aunt before she began to experience memory loss. The title reflects my lack of even knowing where "downtown" was in this photo. The photo was probably taken in 1933 or 1934.
This is my entry in the Rockin Scrapin Grans challenge to do a layout using only black & white. I used sketch 193 from Creative Scrappers as my inspiration.
