Description

"Looking through old blinds, and inside of this box, there are so many old memories going on, memories of what those people actually experienced. They would peek out through the blinds, and back in those days there wasn't as much danger around them. We're in the fast lane, and they were probably in the slow lane of life back in those days. The box is containing some things that reminds us of their conditions." —Lonnie Holley
