I can see the family resemblance with your grandfather.
You hold a pipe in the the same way... ;)

Love old photos, everyone always looks so smart and proud, even when they are photos of people working, and the children always look happy playing with next to nothing.

Lovely pictures.

Pat said...

Parsnip: thinking of you.xox

Judy: don't encourage him.

Helen: I am surprised Gran's skirt looks as if it could do with a press. Her laundry was usually immaculate.

AndrewM: fortunately Mum made me custodian of the photos years ago.

How wonderful to have all these great old photographs. Your Grand Dad is very handsome and has a rakish look in his eye......LOVE that photo of your Mom, too....So sweet to go back and see how everyone looked and what their interests were. A Midwife! WOW!

I love these pictures and hope I can do some catching up. I've been away far too long but finally I'm healthy and a little bit happy :-)

Pat said...

Granny Annie; that's great news. So glad to hear it.
