But the prompt this week reminded me of some photos in an old album from my ex-husband's family.
I started out with a "wagon load" of folks, piled high on a car for their photo. And I do believe these are only females! This photo was pasted onto a black paper photo album, top center shown below.
On the same sheet from the album were other interesting shots, of the same unknown people...
I cropped some of them because I wanted to see more of what was going on.
The photo on the upper left is another group shot with everyone squeezed together in front of some outbuilding...but it includes men as well as women! The man kneeling in the dark suit on the left might be my son's grandfather Norman Heym, but it depends upon when it was taken.
|This is one of my favorites, with a group of people doing all kinds of strange and wonderful things. Notice the teakettle, frying pan and ax. Did I mention the family had friends who were theatrical?|
|Too bad the camera jiggled on this one, where one of the posing people (gentleman?) had a strange looking face.|
|This is my favorite shot, a little person watching the "big girls" hanging on the pipe...letting their hair down!|
The outfits worn by the women in most of the photos are from the 20's by my guess. But the last photo on the porch must have been quite a bit earlier, by Gerturde wearing a long dress. So I'd guess Mary would have been younger than 10, sometime around 1912-1917.
Would that one photo have included her husband to be, Norman Heym? Actually it's unlikely. They didn't marry until she was 24, in 1932. I wish I knew the story of how they met...but that's part of the family history that I've missed.
I'd recommend checking over at Sepia Saturday HERE to see what other bloggers have shared (go to bottom of the page where their names are listed by numbers, and just click on the links).
