Photo Album Page One

     Awhile back I blogged about my idea to store photos of my ancestors in an antique photo album.  As I mentioned in that first blog  I ordered only a few reproductions to be sure I was happy with how they came out, and I promised to show you the results.  So here is the first page, the top pic is one of my O'Hora great-grandparents, both children of Irish immigrants, and the bottom one is of Bridget McGarr Kinsella, maternal aunt to the gentleman in the first photo and an Irish immigrant herself.


     I'm pretty pleased with how they look, though I think I'd add some sepia tones to Bridget's photo next time.  I think it will be an interesting addition to my coffee table!

  1. What a wonderful way to showcase (reproduced) ancestor photos, Ellie! Love the idea of using a classic, heritage album, too.
