I've written about my fabulous Aunt before~~she lives many States away and although I don't get to see her very often, she is wonderful about keeping in touch via email and snail mail~~yes, remember that????? Well, once again, I opened my email yesterday to find this wonderful collection of photographs of my grandparents taken in the late 1930s. She found the negatives in some of my grandmothers things and had them developed~~what a family treasure!
Here' my handsome grandfather~~we think this was taken on their way to Lake George, NY to be wed!
And my beautiful grandmother~~the bride to be!
We aren't sure if this was the same trip, they were married in October, so this may have been later in the fall.
Look at this fabulous swimsuit my Grandmother is wearing! I have one question:
WHERE IS IT NOW??
Here they are again, dressed to the nines, in 1936, one year before their wedding...don't they look charming?
And this was taken at Look Park, in Massachusetts, in the late 1930s ~ early 1940s. My Aunt remembers day trips here to enjoy a picnic and visit with other relatives who would meet them at the park for the day.
It was so touching to see these wonderful old photographs of my grandparents...to see them so young, so full of life & promise, before children & mortgages & all the trials life would bring to them...what did they dream of? What did they wish for? I wish I could ask them now...
Encourage your children to really talk with your parents, if you are fortunate enough to have them still. They have such a wealth of wisdom & experience to share...and they can develop a friendship that will last forever...
Thank you, Auntie Di, for these wonderful family heirlooms...
