Cue the eerie music
Well I did that same scenario several times with these photos.
First off they resided in the wayback box - separately. After plowing through the box and noticing the similarities, I got them together.
And the did go together. Shocking I know.
Way in the right bottom corner of the photo on the right is me. Took me awhile to find me too. My mom thankfully wrote on the back of the photo that it was Dr. Mercer's castle, 1960. I had to look it up on the internet because that was a long time ago, and the photos didn't ring a bell. It's a museum in a castle in Doylestown, PA. The good doctor collected artifacts and tools of trades and crafts that were used in early America as times were a-changing and industries were moderizing.
I don't remember any of that. What I do remember is that when my brother and I were little (and even later), as a family, we would go on these little jaunts - visiting places, sight seeing. And while we whined about it back then (not being able to play with our friends), I look back on those fondly. It actually blows me away that my parents took the time and had to save the money to do it. I made my kids do it too. LOL!!!
I did copy my mom's writing from the back and use it on the page as well as using the original photos. Other than that - nothing tricky (except shades of Shimelle).
