"Down By the Seashore" A Family Collage....

Hello Dear Friends,
Some of you may recall a post
I did awhile back showing you a collage I was starting to make
called Down by the Seashore.
Well I finally finished it and wanted to show it to you.
The two pictures in frames are my Grandmother Elsa in 1917 and the picture of the guys doing a Rockett kick is my Grandfather August third in from the right, this picture also taken in 1917.
The Beauty Queen on the left is my Aunt Julia. She grew up in N.Y.C. and became one of the dancers with the Gertrude Hoffman Girls. Julia was also on Broadway with the Hoffman girls and did "A Night in Paris" in 1925. My Aunt Julia was also a contestant in many beauty pagents and this picture of her was taken when she was in a  Pagent in Atlantic City N.J. in the 1920's. I do not know if she ever won any pagents but "I"  think she was a "Winner" and gave her a crown anyway!!
I think this is a nice way to honor your relatives and keep
their memory alive!!!

Love to All and God Bless You!!
