Sunday Postcard Art: Vintage Men
The "vintage" men in these photos are my maternal grandfather, Harry Fox, and (probably) his brother, whose name I don't know. (Harry is in the single photo at the top, and on the right side of each smaller photo.) I found the photo strips in a box from my parents' house. They remind me of the "photo booth" type pictures we've all had taken over the years. Harry and his wife Beckie came to the U.S. from Eastern Europe and settled in Baltimore, Maryland. The background for this collage is a copy of the 1930 census record that included Harry and Beckie's family. They are the first family listed on this page. My mother (Bernice) was the youngest in the household; you can see that she was 5 years old at the time this census was taken.
