Thank you again, Shirley!

Here are some more great pictures from Shirley...I will soon be adding a link to her Ebay store in thanks for her many wonderful pictures here - please take a look at the Links section to the right and check out her items!

Back reads, left to right: Ike Hill, Mrs Kite, Etta Hill, Mr & Mrs Howard of Marshall, Nell Nichols, Ebb Nichols & the 2 old folk in the front you know. Signed; Aunty

Back reads "Good family portrait." Are these a family surnamed Good, or did the family just think this was a good quality portrait? Anyway, I love the faces in this one, just wish I could see them a little better. To me it looks like several older siblings, and their descendents.

Back reads: Family Reunion, then looks like Kathryn Sloven

The above is a Photo Postcard: Addressed to Mrs P.H. Zopf (Clara) , Waterloo, Iowa - Signed Louise and all.

The above has no names on it, but to me it definitely looks like the mother and her daughters beside her, and granddaughters in the back. Not a large immediate family necessarily, but I love generational pictures.

Taken at Anderson Photographer - Kansas City, Missouri
Back Reads: Before 1898 - Nellie Grant is 2nd from left in front

Now for some more large reunions. The photos are not very high resolution so you won't see a lot of detail but aren't they great?

Cecil Family - Taken Wray, Colorado - Aug 25, 1946

Walt Cross and Family - Probably taken Cope or Wray, Colorado

Family Reunion Photo - Probably taken Wray or Cope Colorado

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!

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