  1. I love seeing the photos you find. This young girl was probably born around 1910. Her somber face is a small mystery, left in a book for others to see 90 years later.

  2. Intense. If I were a writer, I would tell her story... there's definitely a novel there. Look how she's wearing a nice neat skirt and shoes, styled hair, on the edge of that decrepit porch....
