BBBH dug out an old shoe box quite filled with old pictures. A few of the photos had been labelled, most had not. Beautiful has an excellent memory and she did a credible job identifying many of the snapshots, but some of the really ancient postcard mounts were beyond her ken.
As she called out names, I pencilled notes on the backs. Occasionally I would find an unidentified character that I found interesting. A probably not-too-productive activity for a hot summer afternoon, overall.
She did identify these three ladies as her aunts, sisters to her father.
This work crew reminded me of some highway department crews I have observed, less the horses and wagon, of course.
I remarked to her that the unidentified people should be placed in a separate box so that when she has her garage sale, (she is always "going to have a garage sale") she can vend them as "instant ancestors" to people who lack old-timey family photos and would like to have some!
This fellow, frozen in time, may want cigarettes, or a chew. Or perhaps he simply needs some ice.
