1941 Last Portion

In 1941, two young school teachers from Connecticut took a road trip of over 11,000 miles across the US to the Northwest, down the West Coast, and back home across the South. After returning home, one of them, Charlotte Isham, put together a memory book of clippings, post cards, and other memorabilia to commerate their trip. This month we have been featuring the memory book here on John's Island.  Our feature begins here and ends today with the final portion of their trip. We hope you've enjoyed going along with us to see what travel was like some 70+ years ago.

1941 July 25 --> 29

We are taking a look at the memory book created by Charlotte Isham after she and Anne Hausmann (two young school teachers) took a road trip of over 11,000 miles across America in 1941.  The journey begins here and continues below, July 25 through 29, as they leave Southern California, cross Arizona and New Mexico, and see the Grand Canyon, Carlsbad Cavern, and walk across the International Bridge at Juarez to touch Mexico.

To be concluded in the next installment as the teachers cross Texas, Louisana, Mississippi and return home.

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.

Mostly Mt Rainier

Back to Mt. Rainier 2024 ... At the entrance gate the Ranger provided a map of the Park and a sheet of info for Spring 2024.  I was careful ...
