  1. Interesting. I have many cdvs and cabinet card of Emory graduates by Motes, most identified. Well be selling these soon.

    1. Yes, I know there are a lot out there, and I have seen some in repositories, online, and for sale. I searched my scanned images and I have only those of women. I have a few of men that may be graduate, or senior photos, but it is difficult to tell with no id on them. This was to be short and sweet, so I did not pull from outside.

  2. Where did you get the language about your photos being from your collection, etc.? I’d like to put something like that on my blog.

    1. I added the language re the photos being from my collection since I did not state that in the captions. Usually in a post I use a few images of mine, a few from newspapers, and some from LC or other repositories, but these were all mine. I believe my usual statement (following the sentence re my photos) is one I put together after reading several of those used by other bloggers. Feel free to use and adjust to fit!
