More Unnamed Ancestors

A web inspired challenge for March is based on a striking photo of a rough wooden door with an old knob and plate. Its aged appearance led me to old photos and I chose one from Dick's maternal line from an old album. Sadly, we do not know if the couple were ancestors, relatives, or just friends. Still, this is a way to keep alive the possibility of learning the answer.
If you notice five photo images, four details of the whole, the challenge had the extra requirement of five photos of some sort. I think it turned out to be a nice touch.

  1. Great page Jean. I think this turned out great! I hope you can find out who the people in the photo are. Maybe you will get lucky. :)

  2. A very striking page, Jean. That 3D looking flower takes the eye straight to the photo. It´s quite a treasure so it´s a pity you can´t identify the couple in it. Try comparing it with others in your album and maybe you´ll find a family resemblance.

  3. The roughed and aged items yet elegant are so perfect for your photo and how creative to highlight sections of your original photo to come up with 5 photos for the challenge. Some of my favorite heritage photos aren't identified and more than like are in-laws of a great-aunt (sister of my grandfather)that my grandparents took care of in her latter years. Have scrapped several just because they deserve to be! Never know, someone out there may some day recognize some of our unidentified photos.
