I find photos via real estate sites, Google Earth and general searches to match my childhood memories in Port Washington, NY. Buildings, homes and businesses show hints of the past I remember, but also fill in the blanks I have forgotten. I am working in black and white because it reminds me of film negatives. My father saved thousands of negatives in Kodak photo envelopes, which he never reproduced again. I used to think of my parents' childhoods in black and white. My kids have asked me from time to time if my childhood was in black and white.
