Old Photo June 15, 2011

  I didn’t get this photo very straight in the scanner but what kind of fascinates me about it is that it is almost 100 years old.  The man in the photo is my grandfather.  On his left knee he is holding my Aunt Alice (b. 1913)  and his right arm is around my mother (b. 1912).  The photo was taken either in Minneapolis or Omaha.  I have yet to determine when the family moved.  Aunt Alice is now approaching her98th birthday.


  there’s no date on this photo but I am the little girl and the person watching me is “Auntie”, my grandfather’s sister. estimated date summer 1938, Winchester Massachusetts
