And this is my Dad when he was courting my Mum in the late 1920's

(Poor quality photo but was rescued from a flooded basement many years ago)

I gotta say, this is an incredibly moving thread. I wish I had photos of my grandparents. I don't remember them. They passed away when I was very small. Actually, I'm still small, but you know what I mean.

Yes, it is an interesting thread, and well done to AlbertP for coming up with it. Maybe one day in the future shots of me or you will be posted in a 'remembering the past' thread - just one facet of the power of photography in capturing memories.

By the way, you can really improve some of these photos you're scanning using something like Photoshop. Can get rid of the creases, etc. The labs will also print true black and white now. (digital)

Yes, I plan on doing some work on my old ones. But this will be done when I have some free time. LOL Actually, my brother is doing a lot of photo restoration work with the family photos so I might just let him do it. HAHAHA! I have Paint Shop Pro and like it a lot.

I'm enjoying this thread a lot too.

This is a photo of my grandpa from his military days.* He flew B-17 bombers (I think that's what they are called... :-\) and I later found out that he had been a POW after getting shot down over enemy territory.* I thought it was neat to hear him tell us about it.

An image of my grandmother on my mothers side, (I'm Japanese/Scottish American) Miyoko Iwase. Before her tragic death in 1954 at the young age of 39 she gave birth to 8 children and now has 42 or so grandchildren. She's much loved and missed...



...and a pic of the family after the funeral (my mother was only about 6 at the time)

CamelToe, what an emotive photo!

It's so nice to see your grandmother's photo and the school photo. I can't imagine 42 grandchildren. I really enjoy these old ones.

Do you have any more?

Jared, how precious a photo is that!* Just look at those gorgeous gowns on the girls! What work and what love went into the stitches! I also do a lot of sewing and I sure appreciate the hard work that your grandparents' family accomplished.

Thanks so much for sharing with us.* I must look up some more as I also think that this is one of the nicest topics.

Some nice photos. I don't know if I have any from that long ago. I think my sister does, so I'll have to steal some of them. I like how these folks were all dressed up too, but a lot of them were dressed similar to that in their daily life. I mean like the old cowboys. Ever really think about all the clothes they wore? And how now we have people that wear half a shirt, or them cargo pants, no belt so they can ride down keeping the butt cool, and all that. THere are people now who turn the AC on when it is 75.
