What it is:

Six photos, each measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches.  They all have glue and black paper on the backs from having been mounted in an album.

What I know about it:

Nothing!  Undated and unidentified.


My sister is visiting from overseas.  They’re up with my mom now, but I got to meet my new nephew for the first time this weekend.  He’s adorable!  Sorting through some pictures, I found these, and thought they were appropriate.  (I think the baby with the washtub is probably a different day than the others, but I think it’s the same baby.)  The house looks rather large, at least in these photos, but do all these people live there?  In any case, it’s a bunch of people enjoying hanging out with a baby, if only for a while.

  1. This little baby is cute, but your nephew is definitely much cuter!!

  2. I think the younger woman might be the mother of the baby, and the older woman her mother; they have similar noses. I was guessing the younger woman’s clothes are 1930’s, but the grandma’s outfits are so old-fashioned that I’m wondering if it’s really the 1920’s–that would put them closer to the era of down-to-the-floor skirts. I can’t say I know, but here’s a fun page of 1920’s children’s fashions I found while I was thinking about it: http://tinyurl.com/c5eszdp

  3. I think the two older ladies are different people. One seems to have softer features. I wonder if this collection is actually showing three generations as the ones with the older women are taken on the same shooting. Sounds like a full house to me!

    Enjoy your visit with your sister and her new baby, Uncle Matt!

    • I was also thinking that there were three different women here, perhaps mother, aunt and grandmother? Or a cousin? A visiting neighbor? The household help? Hard to say, but I think it may well be that they all live under one roof. Toss in those boys and you’ve got quite a bustling household.

      And thanks for the good wishes! I actually met my sister’s husband for the first time, too, but there aren’t any men in these pictures, so I didn’t mention it. 🙂

  4. Where do you find all these old photos?

    • Hey, thanks for following my blog! The bulk of my collection was bought about ten or twelve years ago, mostly only eBay. I’ve bought a few in antique stores over the years, and I’ve received some as gifts. Since starting this blog, I have to admit I’ve been tempted to start trolling eBay again, but my finances have kept me in check. At least for now. 🙂
