Vintage Photo Friday




I love it when I find photos that have been labeled. It sure helps out in the guessing game as far as details are concerned!

These photos are just more proof of my grandmother's impish ways. Remember, my dear granny never ever wore anything but dresses and skirts throughout my childhood and early adulthood, so these little pictures are such funny treasures to me. My grandmother had a couple of brothers, but, from what I can gather, she was surrounded mostly by her two sisters, so I'm sure dressing up as boys probably tickled them pink. Be sure to click on the photos to see them up close and read the labels clearly -- there are some clever little captions written on them. My guess is that since these were apparently taken in 1922, my grandmother was somewhere around the age of 18 or so in these. She was born sometime between 1903 and 1906, and I'll have to do a bit of research to know exactly when it was. I think the photos were taken in their small town out on the prairie, just a little ways north of where I live now. It also makes me wonder who had the camera, since they obviously had access to one to have taken so many many funny little pictures and not just the more serious family portraits.
