Sepia Saturday: Hattie Chapin Balding

Unfortunately, I have no photos to go with the theme this week.

So I offer a photo of my great-grandmother, Hattie Chapin Balding, taken in front of the ruins of a Hopi dwelling on a trip to the Grand Canyon in the 1920s.

Before my cousin discovered an old family album, we had no idea our Mema was such a traveler.

This is a Sepia Saturday post. Head over there for other really wonderful old photos.

Dee, this is a WONDERFUL photo of your great-grandmother! I love the Hopi Dwelling too; it makes an excellent backdrop in this photo. Don't you just love finding great photos like this one that add another dimension to your ancestor's life you knew nothing about? Excellent photo indeed!
