My mother salvaged some old family photos from the trash when my great gran passed on. They have been in storage for the last 20 years. She has been cleaning and sorting and the photos have come into my possession for scanning, touching up, and sharing with the rest of the family. The photos are priceless, and I will share them as we go along.
Firstly I would like to share this picture...which is not quite so old but it's one I had never seen before.
Now on to the good stuff:
I just LOVE this picture. This is my grandfather when he was a baby. His mother is THE great gran who taught me to tat.
...and here she is with who I think is my great aunt Gen. This is an educated guess as she looks young in this picture and Gen was her first of 8 children. Since I don't see any other kids around..I'm just guessing.
I am really hoping to find a picture of her tatting...that would be so great!
