Unfortunately, this photo did not have any information or markings on the back. I purchased it as a lot off from eBay.
From the type of photo and the style of dress I am guessing the photo is from the late 1940s.
I am assuming this is a family gathering. There is an older couple in the photo. I am guessing the rest are children and grandchildren.
I can guess this is around Easter. If you look closely at the tricycle. There is a pail hooked to the handlebars. I can almost make out a duck or a goose on the pail.
What do you see when you look at this photo?
Until next time…peace
This photo is from a batch I purchased off from eBay. I do not have any information on the photo. But on the back, there is a date Dec. 14, 1957 and the words, “90 years old”.
I would love to know their history. I am assuming the men in the photo are her son and grandson. But, like always, that is just my guess.
What do you think?
Until next time…peace
I recently purchased some negatives from an estate sale. Unlike photographs, I really cannot tell the subject matter of the negatives until I start turning them into images. I usually save the negatives for the winter months when the weather keeps me indoors. But, I could not sleep last night (too much caffeine). So, I decided to “play” with some photos.
One of the first images, I produced was this beautiful cathedral. After researching different architectural structures, I found out this is the Milan Cathedral in Italy. The structure is beautiful. I wish I could fly there right now to view the spectacular place. The Milan Cathedral is 5th largest church in the entire world. We definitely do not have anything that amazing around here. Here are some other facts:
- The Milan Cathedral is the second largest church in Italy.
- The cathedral is dedicated to St. Mary of the Nativity.
- The Italian Gothic cathedral took over six centuries to build. Originally started in 1386 and finished in 1965.
- The cathedral has a capacity of 40,000.
- The cathedral is made out of Candoglia marble.
- The cathedral holds the seat of the Archbishop of Milan which is currently Cardinal Angelo Scola.
The old image I revised does not even come close to showing the beauty of the place. As a person who loves history, I definitely would like to visit the Milan Cathedral. I was on their official website. (http://www.duomomilano.it/en/visit-us/) The cathedral holds various events including organ concerts, Concert by the Choir of Duomo di Milano, and Concert for violin e violcello. The concerts and the guided tours would keep me there for days.
Until next time…..peace
