Finding Hidden Treasures (Could Use a Few!)

 I bought this framed photo for the frame, not the picture of Constance Bennett, although it is a nice one of her.  It is one of those fan photos on slick thin paper that came with a new picture frame.  I love the pattern on the frame, a nice example of early 1930s artwork.  It is also 11x14 inches, not that common for the time.  Now I need to find the 11x14 inch photo of Bob from that period that would fit the frame! 

 Meanwhile, making this a really, really good find, when I took off the back to begin cleaning it, I found this fan photo of young Mr. Montgomery!  

It appears to simply have been added as a filler.  It's an 8x10 fan photo, that has been kicked out of its original frame and replaced by, who knows,  a family member...or another photo of Ms. Bennett.  Whatever, at least it wasn't thrown out in the trash...shudder the thought.
