When Henry Met Grace

My maternal grandparents met in the early 1920s and were married on April 26, 1925.

A family scrapbook preserves a pamphlet from a campground called The Firs in Rockwood, Maine. In the margins, the following notes are written in Grace Block's hand:

I first met my husband at this place while I was teaching at Rockford and he was on a vacation.

[Under a photograph of a cabin] I shared one of these little houses with a woman from Mass., but we [ate] all meals at the Main Camp.

The pamphlet and an accompanying valentine card are dated 1922.
