Helen Noble Putnam Crips
This LO will be the first page devoted to my grandmother in the album I'm assembling - slowly - for my mother's side of our family. I've been working backward, since I started with pictures that needed help, and worked on them in Katherine Weaver's Photo Restoration class. I believe this photo was taken by my grandfather; the 2x3 print is in one of three notebooks I have of his proofs. He developed & printed his own pictures, filed them in neatly lined & numbered spaces in notebooks, added dates along the margin (at least in the first album) - and didn't identify anyone! Talk about frustration!
The background is also one of his photos (probably of Garfield Park, Chicago, or a wooded lawn nearby; it was close to Helen's photo in the notebook) layered over Dinny's Natural - Stone paper, screen blend at 45% opacity. The border is two layers of the Stone paper, with a multiply blend, 100%. Somehow this product didn't make it into the EXIF file.
The information I've used for the journaling comes from research done by my third cousin, primarily through Ancestry.com, and from my own deductions from that information and from the few photo labels I have. THIS picture was labeled on the back - in Helen's handwriting.
