Fran's Favorite Poems

Frances B. Kimball
Growing up in Cleveland Heights on Lee Road

"When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things,
you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you
is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people
looking at it."
---Winnie the Pooh

All three pictures were taken by Fran's Father, Fred Bill ('Nonny'), who was a photographer who worked out of the Hannah Building in Downtown Cleveland. When the depression hit, they moved the photography business into their house on Lee Road. These pictures were shot in black and white and then hand-colored.
