Caption: June: On the Fringes of Memory

Explanation: Here, Ivy meets up with Miss Margaret, a lady who used to take care of her when she was four or five, about whom she remembers very little and had totally forgotten until they met by accident on the street. They look at old photos as Charlotte, Miss Margaret’s now-adult daughter, looks on. –THTIB #2

IVY TRIVIA: Ivy left her parents’ home shortly before turning two. Miss Margaret met her when she was four. Where was she during that window? In and out of crowded shelters that kept rounding her up, mostly, and meeting regularly with a friend in the park. She doesn’t remember this.
