Two worlds collide and become intertwined in this surreal composition when two disparate images are brought together to depict an imagined journey to another time and place. The first one is from the family album, of two unknown women and a child. A memorable trip to the Alcázar Real in Seville, Spain, which the women would undoubtedly enjoyed if only they had had the opportunity, provides the second image. But they were ordinary women, born in a time when women had no right to vote and many left school at 12 or 13 years old. For them there was no prospect of traveling abroad.
