Coming home from Germany also means lots of goodies to share on vintage photo friday since I have been digging in family pictures at my mother's house. The plan is to take good care of and to archive them.
Todays photos show family members, possibly siblings of either one of my grandparent. I love these for their uncommon scene, no smiling faces, posing people, but people at work, which strikes me as odd, since people in small towns back then could not easily afford photos, certainly not cameras and were certainly more likely to take "pretty" pictures. The proud owner of the camera/artist in this case is unknown.
Now here is a picture, that really cracks me up, I mean, just look at their faces.
How can anyone be that serious? What the heck were they thinking? Look at the tablecloth, the background with the oven, the flowers on the table, flowers! Hmm. And by the way, the woman (a distant relative) is wearing a large apron over her dress, very typical back then.
Now you all have a great weekend, and especially a great 4th of July. If my kids were still awake, they would probably wish you lots of fireworks!
