Digital Two for Tuesday 103

Sorry, I did not have time to make these into digitized images.  I do think they will make great backgrounds.  I just got back from vacation in the Bahamas.  The hurricane Irene hit while we were there and then it took us 2 days to get home because the hurricane had moved to the northeast USA.  It was quite an adventure.

Taking Care of the House

These two images are from the same booklet as the previous post called Neighborly Advice from the early 20's.  Unfortunately between the ageing of the booklet and the image size they are not as clear as I would like.  Eventually I will have to investigate a better photo imaging program that would emphasize/darken the lines that are lightened without having to add back in each pixel individually.  The program I am working with is 10 years old but it is so easy to use.
