Mandy has teamed up on a beautiful collab with Seatrout Scraps called Yesteryear. I really loved their last kit, so I was pretty excited to dig into these goodies.
One of my goals for 2015 is to go through an old photo album of my dad’s and put stories to the photos. I scanned in the first batch last weekend, and it was fun emailing back and forth with him and my aunt about them.
I’m not sure what the finished product will be, whether it’s a blurb book of photos and stories, or a few LO’s. For right now I’m just enjoying the process, scanning away and group emails, with a little extra Googling to learn about Nashville in the 1960’s.
These pictures spoke to me because I had no idea there used to be a ferry over the river. I’m interested in going to this site next time we’re in Nashville if that’s possible. (I think one of the docks is located on private property now). I’ve talked a couple of times how the river has been important in my personal history, and it’s also where Jason proposed, so it’s neat to see photos of it that my dad took when he was young.
Journaling reads- Cary took these photos near where the old Mcgavock Ferry used to be. The Ferry would take people across the Cumberland River between Inglewood and Donelson before Briley Parkway opened. The Ferry stopped running around 1965.
