USA Road Trip 1941

Two school teachers from Litchfield, Connecticut, travelled over 11,000 miles on a road trip to the West Coast in 1941.  Thanks to the memory book Charlotte created after their return home, we are able to revisit their trip some 70+ years later.

The newspaper misspelled Anne's last name.  That is, we believe
her travelling companion, Charlotte, probably knew the
correct spelling (as shown in her note
inside the front cover).

I'll bet even Charlotte and Anne would like to see
this kind of enlargement of their
small black and white

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.


  1. How wonderful is that?! Looking forward to more.

  2. It's so nice to relive happy memories and to have the photos to go with them!
