Photo Album

When Blanche's mother moved in with her and her family, Blanche would sit with her in her mother's apartment (the basement).  In order to pass time, Blanche began to assemble her photographs into albums.  Since Blanche has an extensive collection of photographs, all of them could not be included on this page.  Below is a small collection of her photographs.  When possible, these pictures are organized chronologically.
