Judging from the cars (remember I am not an expert), I am assuming the photo was taken in the late 1950s. If anyone can give me any information on the cars’ years, I would love to know.
Of course, I have no way of knowing if the lady was attending a reunion or wedding. But, she does have a picnic basket with a tablecloth down by her feet. The two items made me immediately think of a family reunion. But I know pot-luck style weddings (my favorite) were popular during this time period.
Let me know your thoughts.
I have slowly been working through my recent stack of old photos and negatives.
The back of the photo reads, “from inside the tunnel”. I wish I knew the location of the tunnel.
Until next time…peace
Mid-Michigan is in the middle of a snow storm right now. So, I have put some extra wood in the fireplace to stay warm. Now, I am just working on some old negatives turning them into digital prints. I am thankful that I really did not have anywhere important to go today. The area could see up to 14 inches of snow by morning. I am just hoping that all those who have to get out for work are safe in their travels.
I honestly do not think these photos have been viewed since they were taking. No one remembers the photos. But I am enjoying the trip down memory lane. The first photo I am sharing with all of you today is of my grandfather and his first wife. He was actual married twice before he met my grandmother. At the same time, she had been married two times before. They both agreed the third marriage was the best. I love the old car in the photo, I wish I had that to play around with today.
I was surprised to find a photo of myself mixed in with his negatives. Of course, I can’t really remember him taking the photo. I can tell you the photo is over 40 years old. The photo made me laugh. My mom always tried to put us girls in dresses. If you look closely at the photo, you will notice I am not wearing any shoes and I have band aids on my knee. I loved being outdoors. Still do. And, yes I still walk around with no shoes on during the summer. I think being without shoes connects you with nature.
I hope everyone has a wonderful evening. If you are out in this nasty snow storm, safe travels.
