Grandmother’s Photo Album

The object I chose was my grandmother's photo album. She has had this photo album since she moved to New York from Puerto Rico in 1955. She decided to use this album to keep all the new memories she would experience here. She has kept a lot of memories in it including, pictures, cards, plane tickets and some newspaper clippings. There are even pictures of my mother and my aunts as children in the album. My grandmother loves this album and would always look through it with me and talk about each picture, and I chose this object because it represents my family and our culture.

Year: 1955
