Gone are the days when everyone wore a hat. This photo was most likely taken on a Sunday.
This is Far Guys Dad, his Grandpa, his Grandma, his Great Aunt Charolette and second cousin Roxie. This photo was taken in Omaha in 1948. Grandma and Grandpa must have went to visit. Grandpa never traveled very far from home so it must have been a special occasion.
These women are sisters in law. Grandma married the oldest son, and Charolette married the youngest son. Both were marvelous women whose company I enjoyed. The beautiful child Roxie..lives in Florida and occasionally reads the blog to stay in touch with her Minnesota cousins.
Photographs were often taken outside, the light was better and you did not require a flash.
I have begun to scan some more old photos from Far Guys family, they have been in the trunk upstairs..waiting for me:)
