Fifty Fridays #21

Since this is a time of looking back, I thought I'd go into the way-back and bring out an older photo.


This is my mother's mother and her mother.  So, my gran and my great-gran.  My mother looked very much like hers, don't you agree?  I really don't know who the child in the middle is.  My grandmother had a lot of siblings so there were always lots of cousins.  But having the child in such a formal portrait makes me wonder who she really was.  Maybe a cousin who was a permanent addition to the family?  These things did happen quite often then.

I see that I have given Mr Blair some publicity.  I have no doubt the photographer was a man.  I think the photo looks better for having the cardboard holder.

I'm wondering where is Oxford NS? Lovely photo, the child is obviously well-loved to be in the photo.
I really love how formal these old photos are, so different from nowadays where they're just slapped up on facebook!

Oxford NS 'blueberries'. That's a precious photo. Do you have a family tree?

I love old photos- the older the better. One of Deanie's old boyfriend's mother had a wall of photos of their family. I copied it somewhat only I went back to our great-grandparents on both my side and the husband's side. I'll have to post about the wall one day. Your grandmother was gorgeous!

Oh, yes, you can definitely see a family resemblance there. I love aged old photos - digital won't be the same for our descendants, will it?

I love looking at old photographs. Having been exploring my family tree I've come across people I know only by the pictures I've seen and the anecdotes I've been told. there's a few here

SueH I refuse to go quietly!
