|Frank Welch Lee, age 19, on his Great Adventure|
Today, let me give you a brief preview of the album containing the photos of Dad's trip. His photo album is just a simple one with a black cover and black paper pages inside. The front cover has an embossed center that surrounds it's gold-colored title: Photographs. The album is in good shape even after spending years in my mom and dad's musty storage room and later my basement.

Inside the album are photos of Dad's high school days in Middlesboro, Kentucky, plus photos of his "great adventure." Dad took the time to create a title or introductory page to the section of the album about his 1932 trip. He used a white marker or pen for the title page as well as for the labels under some of the photos. The white print shows up well against the black background, but in some places the ink or marker is beginning to smudge. (Note To Self: place some archival tissue between the pages of this album soon!)

I hope you'll visit the blog next week to see the beginnings of Dad's trip. He'll leave Louisville, Kentucky, and travel by train to California making one "grand" stop along the way.
