The Tie That Binds                               

While antiquing 19 October 2013 I found an old album containing several old photos.  A number of the photos are labeled with names and relationships. The album is approximately 10.5 x 8.5 inches with a blue green padded fabric cover and an oak front with the word album in metal fancy script. There is a metal clasp that still works. I could not bear the thought of someone purchasing the album and removing all of the lovely old photos and selling them one by one.

I believe the album belonged to the Goebel family of John S. Goebel and Mary Gertrude Moreketter.  The back of the album contains several small old photos, some of them tintype. The sad part is that section does not have labels for the photos. I did a search for a member who might like to have the album. I returned the album to a family member who reimbursed the cost I paid for the album, plus postage.

Before sending out the album, I scanned it and am now placing it online for other members of the line to see. If you would like copies of these photos you may contact me at the email address below or download them from the photos online. I also took photos with my iPad. Each photo was gently removed and photographed front and back. You may email me at the email address below with requests for copies of these photos or download them from online.
