I agree defenitly a sad thought , i lost everything in a house fire and all my child hood memorys have gone up in smoke , images that has taken since 1986 to aquire a few from my cousin,I know for me anything i shot even the bad ones are hard ton get rid off , and i even have bad shots on disc , because each shot means so much , even though I see things in a whole diffferent light then other , some people wonder why I take some shots , then they look through and say wow , that was that , cool. to not have images of the yesturday years is hard for me and can,t pitchure my life with out all my images again.

I am fortunate to have a large file of family negatives, dating from the early 1900's including several on glass plate. I have been scanning them when time permits. Here is one from a glass plate. It is a humorous shot of my grandmother and grandfather courting, with my great grandmother on guard to insure that no hanky panky goes on between her daughter and her beau. I suspect the idea for the photo was my grandfather's because he had a great sense of humor. The photo was probably taken in the spring of 1910. They were married in August of that year. I have been told that the blocks used to build the house in the background were made from a Sears and Roebuck mold. It was built in 1907 on my great grandparents farm in Iowa.

1919 - On my great grandparent's farm (my maternal grandfather's parents) in Luddington, Michigan.
(Scanned negatives)

Taking a lunch break from harvesting with a McCormick reaper/binder. I suspect the photo was taken by my grandmother.

My maternal grandfather worked for the Great Northern Railroad. In 1916, he went out west to survey damage from a blizzard. He took a number of photos.
This one is of a Locomotive that was overturned by a snow slide.
