Possible family names are Mangan or Young. That would be the oldest daughter holding the toddler. Or maybe there are two wives?

This is from Ancient Faces, but I can't seem to find the direct link again.

If I've calculated correctly, the oldest child was born when his mother was 16 yrs 9 mos, and the youngest when she was almost 43, making them more over 26 years apart in age.

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.
