Old Family Photos

I love old pictures.  They have character.  We recently retrieved a few of Robin's family, which I scanned and cleaned up a bit.  My favorite is the first one, showing her brother Ron who is now in his sixties.  He still looks the same.  And the last one is of her other brother, Kenny, who reminds me of Dennis the Menace.  (Is that too old a reference for you?)

Do any of these appeal to you?

  5. I love old photos! I need to borrow one specific one from my grandmother. It's of my great-grandmother and her husband on the stoop of their house. She's holding my grandmother as a baby, and my Papaw is wearing this zoot-suit and dapper hat. They both look so suave and amazing.

    1. A zoot-suit?! That's the Holy Grail of vintage photos!

  6. This was really sweet! I love the first one, I love the little shorts with straps, what are those called? Overall shorts? Suspender-shorts? Fucking awesome pants?

  7. I love these type of pictures, from an era, in black and white .... my favorite is the first one with the 3 poses.

  8. Ah, these are great! My mom and dad have all the truly old pictures from our family...I love the ones of my mom from when she was in her early twenties, partially because of our resemblance and partly because she just looks like she was a rad chick to hang out with. There's also one of my grandma, who I never met, that I'm super fascinated by because she just exudes such an old-world glamour and mysteriousness...she was probably less mysterious than I think, but still, I like to imagine.

  9. I do love these old photos too. I like the coloring in the top ones. The first one of Ron is cute. I had some professional photographs taken when I was younger and they posed me in just about the same way as Ron with similar backdrop. I had his legs back then too. I always hated those particular roly poly leg photos of myself at age 3. ha

  12. What wonderful vintage family photographs. I adore looking at yesteryear snaps like these to no end. I completely see the Dennis The Menace resemblance (I loved watching repeats of the classic B&W show when I was a kid in the late 80s/early 90). Thank you for sharing these cherished family pictures with us.
