W/NW old family pictures

A recent thread inspired this idea. Treasured old images you have scanned for and of family.

The year before I was born. My mom and pops with my newborn sister Laila. Spring 1967, Seattle Washington.

Andy,
Thank you for starting this thread. Excellent idea!

This image was taken around 1960 with Moskva camera and self timer in Western Ukraine. This is my grandfather, grandmother, my mother and her sister.

That's me in the Bow Tie. My Brother Mark is not here yet.

Andy, what a fun idea.

I'll contribute. This was the summer of 1958, me and my older brother with my Mom.



She passed away seven years ago this weekend. I still have her Brownie Reflex camera that this picture was taken with. Fun memories.

Best,
-Tim

During the second war but near the end. Our dear family friend and my early photography mentor Klaus. His grandson who is now the same age looks exactly like him today!

Somewhere in Germany


His sister I have never met.


More later

This is my a picture of my grandparents on my mothers side...I never met them as they died when my mother was about 14 years old...this was taken April 1928...going through my mothers stuff I came across this picture maybe a month ago...this was the first time I've seen a picture of her father...I returned this one to one of her sisters who was asking about them...


This is my brother in 1958 or 1959 he was just over one year old...he passed away October 2013...


This is my mother, she might have been about 20 years old here...I'm guessing this is about 1950, she passed July 2014...

One of my paternal side great grand fathers.
This was shot by Dad with his Vito B as well circa 1955
He was born in 1867 and died in 1958. I remember him from my very early years.

That's my great-great-great grandmother, though as she was a nurse for a big merchant's family we don't know whether the child is hers or not. It's an ambrotype in a pinchbeck frame (hence the dodgy edge, which was a paper mask to stop it scratching the scanner glass). Given the relatively short popularity of the ambrotype in the UK, and her likely age, this must date to some time in the early 1860s.

From a 4X5 glass plate negative from about 1910. Not sure who the gents are, but they are distant relatives.

Agreed. The hands holding back the backdrop make the picture!

Awesome thread! Here are my parents approx. 1 and a half years before they were married in the summer of 1964. Still (thankfully) both around, and I will be seeing them on Christmas Eve.

Probably my grandmother's mother and if so it cannot be much later than about 1910. The cupboard is still in the family.

Possibly my great great grandparents, or maybe one level above that. Around about the turn of the 20th century at a guess.

You're probably right, maybe a little earlier. This is about the son of the photographer who was born in 1888.

Mom and my three eldest siblings. Dad with the Rolleiflex, assisted by uncle Bob. About 1953, I wouldn't enter the picture for another seven years.

I think it's a bit earlier than that - the tight bodices, but no leg of mutton sleeves, suggests late 1880s.

http://www.rogerco.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/time/time.htm

(leg of mutton sleeves are giveaway for anything 1890s)

Still lovely to have!

A wedding in the French Alps in 1914. In the left bottom corner there are my great-grand-father and mother.

I was assembling document for genealogical research.
It was a blessing to find on the reverse side annotation about much of these people.

So never forget it : on the back of all this kind of picture, use a bold pencil (or felt tip for smooth surface) and write all information you know (date, place, names, circumstance).
It can be usefull even for yourself.

Around 1914, my great-grand-father, with his wife and 5 of their 9 children.
The young boy on the right (12 years) is the father of my father.
The young man with tie above his mother is just 19 years old and has a bit more than 2 years left : "mort pour la France" with many others in Somme battle of 1916.

My older brother Steve, in the doorway...this would have been around 1961 or 1962...he would have been 4 or 5.
I found the negative last week and printed it yesterday...I've only seen this printed in the set you get from the processor...you know the booklet type of photos...
I thought it sad that it was never printed...it's a very nice 6x6 neg but with no markings as to the film type...not sure who took it as my dad's camera wasn't this sharp plus it has a flash...
I find the candy cigarettes really date this photo...Marlboro's were my brothers choice of smokes later in life...
