Galveston, Texas 1937

galveston mom and her dad-mom 001

71 years before Hurricane Ike hit Galveston, and a mere 22 years after the 1915 hurricane, my mother visited Galveston, Texas with her parents when she was 23. She returned back to their home in Arkansas bearing post cards for her scrapbook. Β I’m copying 8 of them today. They’re made of very study card stock so I was able to take them out of the plastic protectors.

Hope you enjoy a glimpse into life on the gulf coast in the early 20th century.
