A is for AMERICAN PENN!


The 1930's magazine copy of the painting "THE AMERICAN PENN" by J.L.G. Ferris was cut and pasted into a scrapbook long ago by a young lady who loved art. I discovered her beautiful scrapbook from the 1930's a few years ago while antiquing in Ohio!
Enjoy and have a wonderful Alphabet Thursday!
