Hello Bobby, that is my Mum standing at back…Glad you like it. Shirley
Thank you for the welcome. Shirley
A really beautiful photo!
Thank you kindly, I love these old pictures, glad you also have the same taste. Thank you for the fave.Shirley
I wish I had more pictures of my mom and dad when they were younger- what a beautiful photo – These are the captures that are closest to the heart :)
They are nice to have Rose, I have my history back to 1775, of Scottish descent thru’ Mum’s side.Mum was one of 8 and her parents could neither read nor write but managed to raise a family and my Grandma made all t he girls clothes, she lived til she was 95 and her Mum, my great grandmother was 105, so I have a long living family but Mum died at 59 from a fall down some stairs.

Shirley that is amazing you have so much knowledge of your past. That is amazing 95 and 105 years old. Poor little mum I am sorry to hear – I come from a family of 8 I am the second youngest. All I know is my Mom’s root start from Horni Lidec Czech and my Dad is Slovak and his mom was English – they don’t speak of the past I have some pictures of my Grandpa I called him Jeda and My Name came from my Mom’s mom – I hope to learn so much more – but it is hard when my parents don’t like to speak of it – When my aunty comes down I hope to learn some from her. I sure love the writings you share with me :)
You are very welcome Rose, I think if you know the name of your grandparents and perhaps where they were born you can look it up on the computer on one of the Ancestry sites. I know that one of my G.G Grandmothers was Irish, her name was Nora and I think I am from that line, she was my G.G Grandfathers 2nd wife and he had children from the first as well. It is a long time since I read it all but it can be traced on computer. I have a book but I gave one each to my 3 children so i have to contact them for anything I have forgotten. It is interesting. Shirley.
A beautiful Daguerreotype so good it’s preserved, it’s lovely to see it here!
Thank you so much, the picture was taken by their Uncle who had his own studio and taught himself….I have a few of them but not all come up so good. Shirley
Thank you so much for the fave. Shirley
Awesome photo.They all seem to look so much alike in their faces.
I do believe it is because they didn’t smile, My Mother who is standing had a lot of black curly hair the other two were fairer and they were the aunts of the little boy who is my cousin. Thanks for coming by .. Shirley
Delicate, evocative, good picture!
Thank you so much, guess I love it because they are my ancestors but also for the dress code and the hair styles. Love the picture… Shirley
This is so beautiful,Shirley! Love the girls all dressed in white with matching ribbons .The sepia and shading of earthy colours on the walls and floors are amazing. Thanks Shirley for sharing this precious 100 yrs old photo and the history.
Sorry Pat I missed this reply, I do appreciate you came by and Thank you so much. Shirley
