Old Photos

Children’s Photographs

I have two great photographs to share with you today.  This young girl appears to be eight or nine?  After the turn of the 20th century, many more photographs were taken outside.  This is probably the farm where the children lived.  One of this girl alone makes me think there could have been a photo of each individual child.

The second photo is of the six brothers and sisters.  How sweet they all look, dressed in their best.  I especially love the large white bows for the older boys.  The photographs have no distinguishing photographer’s name, or names of the children.  Just a lovely reminder of a time long ago.

  1. My mother had 3 shoeboxes full of black and white photographs, many dating back to the 1920s, and a few before 1900. I always encouraged her to write who was in the picture on the back since most, especially the very old ones, were of people that my generation had only a guess who they might be. She did a pretty good job, but sometimes had to put a question mark by her notations. I recently was able to identify one of the photos by browsing the family tree galleries of relations on Ancestry. I happened upon almost the identical photo that matched my unknown. There are minute differences, but in my mind they are photos of the same person.

    She was my maternal great grandmother’s niece. So sad that this beautiful young woman died at the young age of 37 of acute general peritonitis from duodenal ulcer, a condition that would have been very manageable today.
