Looking back

This is a photo of my Mom and my Grandfather (on the left) probably taken at Cook Station Missouri. Mom was born in 29′ so I would assume she was a round a year old. It looks like the tag is from 1930 and from Michigan. Mom didn’t have a clue on the identity of her Dads friend.

    I love looking at old pictures but either my family doesn’t have many, or they just still have them hoarded away somewhere only to hopefully be rediscovered at a later date.

    Ed..We just recently came into some more family photos that my Aunt had stowed away. She just passed last week so we have been coming across photos and thinking about family. All the kids have been telling their respective folks to please write down who people are in photos and sharing stories. I feel like it is all very important to pass on these things.

    I used to love going to grandma and grandpa’s and digging out old photo albums. Now that they have passed away, I have no idea where the albums ended up… but the pictures of my grandpa leaning on an old model T are burned in my memory. Those old pictures sure give a glimpse of a completely different attitude towards life. It is a great idea to have the living try to identify the people in photos. My mother gave us generations worth of photos to sort through and we had no idea who the people were. Ron

    I love old pictures like that, especially when they include cars!By the way, I can’t see the next one… it may just be me.

    I have been our reading blogs, something I have not had time for in awhile, I enjoyed your old photos, I just finished making two digital pages of each of my Grandmother’s photo with a favorite cookie recipe of each one.
