 This is a spin off on Carpy's recent post.  When I mentioned that I collect antiques and adore my old family pictures, I was asked to post them.  So here are some of them.  I would love to see yours whether of family or friends, it doesn't matter. 

My great grandparents, grandfather and great uncle:  Circa 1891

My mother & uncle:  early 1925

My grandparents, my mom & uncle: 1925

My dad:  late 1922

My mom, her brothers & sisters & my grandmother:  circa 1933

My grandparents & uncle:  circa 1922

My parents wedding, 1945...they met while Marines

My mom's family:  circa 1939

My dad's dad while my dad was in the Marines during WW2

My dad's mom, same time as above picture.  Note the "V" (for victory) pin on her blouse.  Women wore those during WW2 to show support for our troops

And finally, my brother, my parents & me when I was about 4 or 5

This is my mom with her little sister who died of a hole in her heart.  My grandma took her all over the country and into Canada looking for a dr to help her.  Now days it is an easy fix.
