(very) old family photos

as most of you are already aware, i have a big ol' crush on old photographs (and photographs in general). it doesn't matter if the photos are of my family or not, i still horde them like there's no tomorrow (and i have boxes, bags, and an entire shelf of hotel hot trash as proof).

recently, a second cousin of mine brought out a book he's been working on at a family party. he has been researching our family tree on my mom's side and has uncovered lots of neat photos and stories about ancestors i never knew existed. i wish i talked to him more often so that i had more info to share, but at least he emailed my mom a few of the old photographs that he came across in his research. they're pretty neat!

  1. Such great faces in those old photos. I have a big picture of my great grandparents. Tehy are a stern looking couple! I should do a blog post about it, huh?
