Amazing things about old pictures. Old photograph made in Georgia.

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

I love old pictures.  Way back then, having your picture taken was something rare unless you were rich and I was not and knew no one who was.

This picture below is actually only 3" x 4" in real size but the scanner makes it big and easy to see.

It shows the way clothes were hung out to dry.

It shows how one squinted into the sun when looking at the camera.

It shows an old barn in the background, appearing closer than it really was so depth in photographs was deceptive.

It shows the simplicity of old toys....just a tricycle with a cute little bell on the handlebars.

It shows that girls mostly wore dresses, home-made ones, of course.

It shows that yards were mostly weeds and not closely mowed as yards are today.

And it shows that little child, my nephew, looking like an absolute doll.  And in case you wonder, I am on the left and my big sister is on the right.

 

Old pictures, old homeplaces,old ways

I love old photos too....I like to visit my aunts in their 90's and they like to share and reflect on the old times.

I love black and white photos.  In fact, this is one of my favorite!

Kristin, thanks for commenting on my blog.

Ellen, looking back I so wish that I'd cornered old aunts and uncles and parents and made notes of their memories.  When they are gone, the history dies.  : (

Kathy, I'll bet that is you and your dad or granddad.  Look at th eold TV in the background and your little saddle oxford shoes!  Precious.

Barbara, you are indeed correct.  It is me at age 3 on Easter Sunday and my GrandDad.  He is showing me the baby chicks my sister and I got for Easter.
