For Christmas, my grandparents gave my parents a bunch of old pictures on a CD. I, being the lover of old stuff that I am, promptly downloaded several of them (there were 10,900, so not all of them :) )
And finally, in closing, this one from the 1800s is my favorite. From left to right top row: we have ma, pa, daughter and husband, bottom row: gramps and gran, another daughter, and finally, crazy old uncle Bill, who still thinks he’s in the Civil War. He is holding an ax and a knife, and has rounds of ammo…
Anyway, looking at these pictures amused me for several hours. Especially sorting through 10,900 pictures… but I could look at this old stuff for hours. We have a trunk in our basement full of old artifacts from various relatives from the 1900s. I guess this just shows I love history :)
Have a good weekend!
