Sepia Saturday


Sepia Saturday

I'm posting at Sepia Saturday today.

Sepians who wish to theme-along can "let their hair down" with this one going with unflattering portraits, beards, hair, lockets, medical conditions or red shirts. 

I'm going with my maternal great-grandfather's hair and mustache. My grandmother, standing in front, was born in 1907 so this appears to be around 1912?

  2. He's sporting a very neat moustache, & she appears to be hiding a Gibson Girl look under her hat.

  5. A wonderful photograph, and doesn’t your great-grandmother have beautifully large eyes?

  6. Nifty little S-curved conversation chair. It's interesting that your grandmother is wearing glasses. Her eyesight must have been really poor to have it detected at such a young age.

    1. WOW, Wendy, what an interesting comment about the glasses. She did go blind probably in her late 40s, when my Mom was quite small.
