February Photo Collage Festival – 28 photos, 28 posts.

This February  Julie@Anglers Rest is hosting a February Festival of Collages.  It all started after Pauleen of Family history across the sea posted a collage and we started commenting. Before we knew it, this challenge was born. Participants will post a collage of 28 photographs on January 30 or 31 and for each day of February we will blog about one of the photos.  There are no other rules. It doesn’t have to be about genealogy. To participate you just post a link to your collage on Julie’s page at the link above.


I decided to combine several themes in my collage. I have several photos of places I lived that weren’t covered in the A-Z challenge last year. I have some Sepia Saturday themes that I will cover on the appropriate Saturdays.  I have been working on investigations for two separate family lines. I will write up one of them during this challenge. One is “What happened to Hugh Reed and his family?” I will be writing about each of the members of this family.  I will be writing about what happened to the cousins who appeared in this photo in answer to the question “What did they do when they grew up?”.  I’ve filled in the remaining spaces with relatives or events I haven’t written up but want to.  The first post will appear on Friday, February 1.  I will be going through the pictures in no particular order.

  1. It will be great to see where your theme goes and learn more about your family -there are times I wish I had a bigger family and this is one of them as I’d have more variety;-)

  2. Kris, where was the street scene featuring the Dairy Queen shot, when was it shot and where’d you get the photo? It looks familiar. Thanx. My best to Jim.

    I have the honor to remain

    Your Li’l Bro’,


    1. That photo was taken in 1968. It’s looking down 3rd in Detroit towards downtown. Jim had the photo. His old apt. on third is on the right side above the house roof. It was upstairs over some empty store fronts at the time. There is a religious organization there now. They seem to have the whole block. I’ll have a better photo of it when that is the featured photo as I talk about Jim’s apartment back in the summer of 1966.

  3. Great photo and collage. I’m glad to learn that Jim’s helping you to reconstruct our local history. Wonderful. Thanx.

    1. I found this photo in his papers back during the Black Conscience Library days and I’ve had it in my Detroit personal history files ever since. He’s always glad to help though.

  4. The collage is great–and includes some really intriguing pictures. I’m looking forward to learning the stories behind the pictures over the next month.
