Vintage Weekly # 65: My Grandma & Her Children

Momma, her brothers,
her mother and she gathered
for fam'ly portrait.

By the time
 this family portrait was taken,
my grandmother was a widow.
Most probably her brother-in-law,
owner of a photo studio
along with his wife,
took the picture.
I cannot imagine
that my grandma could afford
such a luxury.

to Vintage Weekly #65
thank you, Jane,
for hosting this meme!

I think old photos often relate small pieces of family lore that we have forgotten or never known. Those small pieces of history are part of us. Thanks for sharing.

Michael, with your using James, I had hopes that finally Jimmy Kern was found. I haven't heard from him in decades. I hope you are doing well.
