Behind the looking glass

Old image, partially exposed

It is fun living in an older house. I have been painting the downstairs rooms over the last 2 weeks or so. We inherited a large mirror that was hung in our front entryway. When I removed it to paint the space the above photo fell to the floor. It is interesting to think about how long it has been there, who put it there and why. I think it is a picture from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Washington D.C. taken by a child with a parents camera. Every house has a history, and it is fun when little clues like this surface.
