1. My mother in law

was in an assisted living facility and we were visiting her. I happened to notice a shoe box filled with old photos...most of them were deteriorated to one degree or another. I asked her if I could "borrow" the photos and make copies of them. She was very reticent, but I convinced her I would return them in just a couple of days. She reluctantly agreed. I took them home and in a marathon session scanned them all into my computer.
The photos have been displayed on line a couple of times but only as standalone I was watching some Ken Burns "Baseball" and it inspired me to put something together using Adobe Premier Pro. I want to try to do a narration and add some effects....I do like this end result, it took a couple of hours to do and it still feels incomplete, but for now I am satisfied. My main problem right now is that my mother in law could not remember most of the w's in the photos. She has passed on now so identifying people, places and this are problematic.

2. K&R. Fascinating photos - thanks for sharing this!

And I think my Dad had the same kind of camera as some of the photos, the ones with the dates on the sides look like some in his oldest album.
