Several months ago, my brother started a project to scan in pictures from my mother's old photo albums. Yesterday I received a thumb drive with the fruits of his labors - his Christmas present to me and my family.
Some of the pics were old memories captured for all time. Some of the pictures I never remember even seeing. Today I'm going to post a few of the old, old family photos that I saw for the first time this morning.
My paternal grandmother:
From left to right and center - paternal great grandfather, grandfather, uncle and father - taken around 1940:
Standing - Aunt Hazel. Sitting on the railing: my paternal grandmother.
And finally, my dad when he was about 12-13... so 1948/49:
Wasn't he a cute kid?
More scanned pictures to come in the future. I'm just so over the moon to even have these. I'd kiss my brother if he wasn't a thousand miles away. (and if I didn't think he'd sock me one. LOL)
