I also remember going to the fashion shows they ...see more

What is an Album?
An album is a way to save a selection of Frith photos, maps and memories that are of interest to you.
Creating an Album enables you to make short lists and then make a final selection from the album. In particular it makes ordering things like calendars much easier - simply create an Album of the 12 photos you like and then use the Album when placng your order - our order process will give you this option.
You can create as many Albums as you want, so perhaps make one for your hometown, where you live now, where your parents live now etc.
