old family photos

I love looking at other people's family photos. I love to get a glimpse of where people lived, how they dressed, how they stood, how they grinned or posed.

My sister and I scanned hundreds of our family photos for my mother's sixtieth birthday last year. We digitised them so we could put them on a digital photo frame for her to keep in the family room. It seemed a shame that all these photos of many decades of our ancestors were just sitting in the hall shelves unlooked at. I was just looking through them again and some are so wonderful I thought I would share.

The photos below are my grandfather on the beach, then a few of my mother as a child, then one of grandad and a group of men. I put more photos in a set on flickr
