When Ms. Pecolia Allen Wallace (far left) shared the photograph of her ancestors everyone stood up. She told us that many in her family lived beyond 100.

The Journey Projects was at Southwest Library on October 22 for an amazing Gathering Circle. Some residents waited for more than an hour to have their photographs scanned. I really appreciate their patience.  The photographs that were shared bore witness to the spirit of South Fulton County and the history of the area.

Claudette Williams and Julia Pye Gaston joined the Gathering Circle to share photographs and memories of family.

 

Pictured are Albert Studiemeyer and Dorothy Scott Studiemeyer, posed in front of a painted backdrop. Albert's casual demeanor is complemented by Dorothy's shy but supportive stance. According to Eloise: My father died when he was about 28 years old of heart disease. This is the only photo that I have of him. My mother lived to be 89 years old. She was born on August 2, 1912. I was born in Atlanta and I've been here all my life.

Their smiles are almost identical. “My father died when he was about 28 years old of heart disease. This is the only photo that I have of him. My mother lived to be 89 years old.
