Then and Now...422 East Pikes Peak Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO

Because I continue to be fascinated with my grand-aunt Ruth's scrapbook I never knew existed, the new cover photo is of a place my Balding relatives stayed in the 1920s. The caption in the lower left-hand corner says: The Millers Hotel, 422 E Pikes Peak Avenue, Colorado Springs, Colo.


The photo below is what that spot looks like today, on Google maps.


I'm not so sure that's progress.

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.
