Family Fun

My dad recently sent me a picture of our family taken in 1907.  This picture includes my Great Grandma and Grandpa and their friends.  Isn't it great?  I absolutely adore everything about this photo.  It looks like they were having a fun time together eating watermelon and enjoying the sunshine.....I love the woman on the left who is looking a bit sheepish and the guys on the right who are very dashing.  I need to find out exactly who everyone is in the photo.


I think it's a bit funny that the picture is crooked and the heads cut off--taking those type of pictures must be a family trait!  A few of the women are crouching down like they know the person taking the picture isn't a good photographer! hahaha.

  4. Imagine trying to eat watermelon without dribbling all over those lovely white dresses! You can see why some of the ladies are practically bent in two doing so... What a great picture!
