Virginia Collins Photo Album

These pictures were scanned mostly from albums put together by Ty and Virginia Collins. Ty passed away in 1973 and Virginia in 1998. I will provide captions to these photos as I have time. King Collins, March 15, 1999.

Virginia Collins, a tinted photo taken when she was in her mid twenties, I think. This photo and the previous one "TyCol*" were always together always together on her dresser.

This picture of Virginia was taken about the time I (King) was born in 1938. (Sorry, but I lost the enlarged picture. I'll put it in later)

Virginia on a train going east. This photo was taken in the summer of 1995 when Virginia and I (King) took a train trip from California to the midwest and east coast. I'd like to tell the story of this trip in more detail. We had a great time and visited many members of the family.
