Viewing Record 97 of 102 artist: Shay, Arthur


We moved from our Chicago apartment to our first house--a $13,000 3 bedroom wonder in Des Plaines. It had a basement I used as a darkroom. Three or four of the now vintage prints I made in that time in that darkroom are together worth more than that house! The first artifact Florence installed was the camp bugle that was instrumental in our meeting at camp-I was the bugler and she was the counselor who edited the camp newspaper.
