Sometimes we meet people in passing. Let me introduce you to Ms. Mabel Naft Wood from Tarrytown, NY. She was a Writer who was born on Feb.10,1899.
Part of Mabel's belongings were at the flea for sale. Along with, her suitcase, 2 passports, immunization record and an invitation to a agricultural picnic in Dutchess County, NY. She traveled to the United Kingdom and France. Not a frequent traveler but, all the same very interesting.
The invite didn't belong to Mabel. Dated from 1894 and addressed to a Etta Woodruff who lived in New York. I wonder if she knew Mabel? Maybe a relative? One will never know... will we? Did you see the price of the ticket was one dollar? Must of been alot of money for 1894. I think ephemera is so fascinating, not to mention black and white photography from the 19th century. It gives me goose bumps.. you too?
My computer is working so, so. Blogger is slow and etsy will not let me upload my photos I took today. Very, very frustrating. Yeah, guess somethings just have to wait. What are you up to?
Happy Memorial Day :)
