Now as you may know I am not in the habit of putting family photo's on my blog, but tonight I am making an exception.
As I said in my last post I am busy at the moment scanning in old family photographs, and in one of my late mothers albums that I borrowed from a Sister I was surprised to come across the photo below.
This image shows my Grandfather and Grandmother with my late Auntie standing on a chair and my mother as a baby on my Grandmothers lap.
Working out the age of my mother in the picture to be around 3 months old, and she was born in November 1903, this photograph must have been taken in the Spring of 1904.
Sadly as I am the youngest of nine children both my Grandparents passed away before I was born, also only around three very blurred images of my Father have been found and I only have vague memories of him as he passed away when I was Six years old.
Still it was great to find this real surprise.




  1. An emotional image with great sentimental value!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  2. I think it is fascinating to look through old family photos and to delve back into family history via the census, family records etc. I have stacks of photos myself but unfortunately being a child of 'older' parents, there is no one left to ask or identify many of them.
