I still have a number of old family photographs that are not completely identified.
This one is from Far Guys Mom’s side of the family.
It was probably a family gathering with watermelon maybe the 4th of July. The photo was taken at a lake. There are three unknowns.
Great Aunt Mae was there and she and Great Uncle Frank lived in Nebraska. Great Aunt Mae was Grandpa Curt’s sister. I have no idea if one of those men is Great Uncle Frank or not. (Frank was Grandma Meade’s brother…confusing I know, but it makes it easier when you go to visit relatives…less stops.)
Great Aunt Ethel was there too. She was Grandma Meade’s sister.
Aunt Marie was there. I wonder what year this was? Possibly before she was married in 1943.
Far Guy’s Dad Marvin was there. Where was his Mom? Taking the photograph?
Great Aunt Mae seems to be talking to someone….oh well they all seem to be enjoying the watermelon. Maybe she is hollering at Frank “Sweetie bring me some watermelon.”
I wonder why so many people took photos of people eating watermelon? You would be surprised how many old photos have that for a theme.
Whenever I eat watermelon outside at a picnic I lean forward so the watermelon juice doesn’t land on my shoes.
