My Great Grandparents, The Halls by 


222 views as of 9.12.12

Here are my great grandparents, my grandfather’s side of the family. I’m not sure the age of this photo, but if I were a bettin’ man, I’d say this here picture is a shade older than I am, at least, lol! This photo maybe the second oldest picture I own. Grandma Bea’s parent’s portrait is 112 years old, but I doubt if this photo is that old. Her parent’s portrait was taken before she was born.

Other than the above, I can’t give much detail about this one, i.e. the location, etc., except somewhere in Georgia, USA, probably around the Atlanta area, based on other family photo locations of the Halls.

… after scanning this B&W picture to my computer, I did little editing to it. What you see here is what the original looks like, white border included.

POSTER

As an artist I enjoy painting and photographing segments of rural life. Country living became a new world for me back in the sixties when we moved from Chicago, Illinois to East Tennessee. I want to capture what I now see before country living vanishes… at least in my area!

    These are just taking me down memory lane with looking at our old family photos, many of which are now lost or separated. Since my mom passed they have been thrown out, pity!

  • Oh… that’s sad, Vivian. But I’m glad these old pics take you down memory lane. That’s a good place to visit occasionally!

    Hi Bob, by the length of the dress I would hazard 1920’s early 30’s. My Mum’s was that length and so was my grandmother’s.. Would that fit in with the age grouping do you think?

    Now do you know where they were going for they each carry a case? Perhaps a holiday . Shirley

  • Perhaps so Shirley, or moving. I think I was told they were moving here… not sure. Good comment. Sorry for the late reply, friend.
