Almost Wordless Wednesday: Benita in Paris

Benita (McGinnis) McCormick
          (1889 – 1984)

The photographs below are from my great-aunt Benita’s scrapbook, in which she reminisced about her first trip abroad.  Here, a few of her memories of Paris.

Benita McGinnis, possibly in the Bois de Vincennes,
Paris, France, about 1913.   2″ x 3″ photograph from
her scrapbook.
View from the Eiffel Tower of the Champ de Mars and the
Grande Roue de Paris Ferris Wheel, about 1913.  The ferris
wheel, built in 1900 for the Paris Universal Exposition, lasted
until 1920.  2″ x 3″ photograph from Benita McGinnis’ scrapbook.

 

“Boys in Paris instruct me,” Benita wrote in her scrapbook.
