First post in three years.....

Dear fellow old-photo-appreciators

I'm sorry for the very long silence!  I realize that most people will not have been frustrated by my lack of adding photos to this blog, since with feed readers people are able to follow a blog without clicking on it to check for new posts.  Thank goodness for that.  However, I still feel bad and apologize.

(teasers, keep reading)

Several years ago (it looks like 5 years ago!  Eek!)  I started spending time on Flickr, looking for old photos of big families posted there.  I spent months at this, and I found so many that I had to create several more accounts just to be able to "favourite" the many I found.  My goal was to post the links to these favourite lists on this blog, so that you could see all the photos without my having to link to each picture separately in multiple blog posts.  Also, many of them would not have allowed that with their privacy settings anyway.

So, without further ado, here is the link to one of the lists:

List 1: favourite old photos of large families

(Please leave a comment if you are unable to see pictures at this link and I will look into whether I have to change any privacy settings to make them visible.)

The pictures are nearly all of large families or representative members of a large family, as explained in their descriptions, and occasionally multiple generations.  Very occasionally, I've "favourited" another photo that I think is particularly interesting, beautiful, or touching; pictures like that will just accidentally be in this same set of photos.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I have! 

Thank you for reading and commenting.  I hope you have a wonderful week!
