While cleaning out the attic of the house in which my sisters and I grew up, we found these two towels.

I believe these are linen. They are hand embroidered with the names of my parents.
I’ll have to ask my father if he remembers these towels. I suspect they may have been wedding gifts for my parents in 1947.
We’re still going through boxes and boxes of mementos and documents from the attic and cellar on this snowy afternoon in upstate New York.
