Featured Page - 400 Whitehall

     My maternal Granfather's mom and step-father owned and operated The Frederick Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia during the 1940s and 1950s. I heard family stories about the hotel, which many family members stayed in at one time or another. Unfortunately, the location where the hotel once stood is now a park-and-ride for MARTA customers. I was very disappointed to discover this, as I wanted to see what the hotel looked like.  Recently, my mom and I visited my Great-Aunt Ree, who gave me a number of old photos. Included in those photos were three of the hotel.  I've put them into the layout below. I did a lot of heat embossing in this layout. Both the '400' and the keys were given their gold color using heat embossing.
