Four wonderful new pictures...

that arrived in the mail in the past week. I just love these. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! (Please? I paid really good money for them! LOL)

Here's one that I got to qualify for the MegaFamily board. Just a nice size family!

The above photo says "Dr. Cosner, Dec. 1920" I love the chubby-cheeked toddlers, and the little one looks so cheeky with that grin, perhaps not quite as dignified as her doctor father!

I have nominated you for the Nice Matters Award!
Hi ! Just found your blog. Great idea! I too love vintage photos! I have a large family myself . I have an old family photo you might like with my mother and her 5 siblings from 1928. I would be happy to share it.

Tonya: they really do! I've written you by email.

Elizabeth: I'm sorry I'm so slow - I was checking your comments and not whether you'd edited the blog entry itself! And I was so shocked to see my site on your blog yesterday - and I had forgotten to check here for any comments! It was so sweet of you. I will reply on your blog.

Lynda: thank you so much! I would LOVE to see your mom's photo. I have also replied on your blog.

Cowboy family from the 50s or early 60s.

I love this picture of a family with great big smiles!  I wonder whether this is their farm and their horse, or maybe they were city folk who wanted their family picture done on the farm.  I tend to believe the former because a picture on a dude ranch or friend's ranch would probably be with more obviously western clothing accessories and background. Forget the polo shirt!   I bought the picture on Ebay and have no information on the family or where this was found or taken.  Of course, if anyone recognizes them, please let me know!  I'm not familiar with the trees in the background.  Perhaps someone can tell me what they are and they will be a clue to the location.

As usual, click on the photo to see it full-size.  It is actually REALLY big so you may need to click on the enlarged picture another time if your browser sizes it to fit the page.

Two beautiful "found photos"

I first saw these photos on a blog called Celestial Charms.  When I asked permission to post them here the owner kindly said I could post any photo from her Flickr photostream!  Thank you so much, Maureen!

I'll start with the the two photos that I found at her blog post, Thoughts on Victorian Fashion.

As usual, please click on the photos to see them at their best.

First is a lovely photo of five little brothers from Canajoharie, New York. 

Next is one of the same five boys with their two sisters and their parents as well.   They look like a pretty well-to-do family, and with all those boys there must have been a fair bit of mischief going on.  And with the girls, even more.  I can say this as my family is almost exactly the same in make-up, though spread out in age more than this one.
See Maureen's thoughts about the fashion and dating of these photos here at Celestial Charms--Thoughts on Victorian Fashion.

Thank you, Maureen!

photophiles please ignore this post

Just adding some photos here for another purpose as I don't have a better place.
