These are all pictures I acquired from my grandmother, and are mostly of her and her mother, from around 1900 to the 1950s. I think these really give you a glimpse into the life of these times, and what styles were common in “real life”. They are immensely special to me, and I am very proud to share them with all of my readers 🙂
Above is a picture of my great grandmother Martha (whom my grandmother used to think I looked so much like, to the point of tears where she saw her in my eyes) holding my grandmother shortly after her birth in October of 1915.
Above is my grandfather in 1928. Most of these are of or from my grandmother, but a few will contain him since (naturally) he was her husband.
My grandmother won a “Most Beautiful Baby” contest with this very picture 🙂
My grandmother could wear hats like nobody’s business.
These are pictures I intend to keep for the rest of my life. They also give me a sneak peek into that period in time that I adore so much, and gives me ideas and clues about the fashion and beauty of the time. Take a look at old family photos – you’ll find great fashion and beauty ideas as well as getting a great knowledge of your personal history, about who YOU are. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
