Last weekend I found some wonderful antique photos and postcards in a shop called 'Mindfull Books and Ephemera.' There was a basket with a sign reading 'collage fodder' and you can bet I had a field day digging through that! The collage pictured was made using one of the vintage photos I purchased. In this piece I have tried to present the opportunites that may have faced Vera when she graduated from high school in 1927. Did she travel the globe? Work at a small company entering numbers in a ledger? Pursue a career in music or theatre, or marry young and raise children whom she brought to the picture shows? This collage is my tribute to Vera and whatever path she chose.
