My mother left me this most amazing album full of little business-card sized images documenting her life. Her grandfather made a "pin-hole" camera out of a cigar box for her to use. I would like to share some of these pictures.

Almost every summer, my mother would go with her parents and grand parents for a Catalina Island vacation. (Let's's the song go, "twenty-six miles across the sea Santa Catalina is waiting for me...") They would ride the deck of a real steam ship for a 3-hour trip to the island. On the island, they stayed in what was called "tent city" and spent their evenings dancing at the Pavillion in Avalon Bay. Sounds great!

Do these little photographs have genre or catagory name?
