This is an old photo from the photo album of Great Aunt Frances or Aunt Skinnie as she was affectionately known. The photo was taken in 1922 when she was 19 years old and Jimmie (Uncle Jim to us) was just a babe in arms.
This old photo album is a real treasure.
:-)I sure wish I was known as Aunt Skinnie, but it's not likely or even appropriate. Love the old picture.
Are we talking Jim Henderson?
How cute. And only 19 with a child. Some families are really big on nicknames.
Look at that baby smiling, and those baby booties! I used to love those gift sets of a little sweater and booties.
She is his Aunt
That's an amazing picture—so sharp and well preserved. Very pretty woman!
What a wonderful photo, and yes I agree, so well preserved!
This photo is a true treasure. I'm glad that someone took great care to preserve it.
Love how happy the baby is in this photo.
They really used to bundle up the kids and spend a lot of time knitting and crocheting outfits, didn't they? :)
Do you know why she was called Aunt Skinnie? It's an intriguing name and doesn't seem like short for Frances!
Skinnie? Now there's a family name!
Lovely photo, and Jimmie was a happy baby!
Awesome smile on Jimmie and look at all that knitting or crocheting!mInlike how the corners of the photo are held.
Really? Not in my family. Mind you, I did have an Uncle Evelyn. And an Aunt Evelyn, and a Great Granny Evelyn. So each family makes its own rules I guess.
Just love old photo's of family!
She was very thin!
You managed to answer my questions already ( through your answers to previous commenters) Aunt Skinnie doesn't look very skinny but maybe she was as a child? Also wondered if Jimmie was her child and you answered that one too. I love old photos.
Jim is errr was a cutey pie!
a nice look back
What a happy baby he seemed to be!
Great photo, and I love the handwritten script.
I love old pictures!! And I am glad you know who they are. So many of the old photos I have we have no idea who they are! Happy baby!
I had an Uncle that was called Skinny Bones. Nice picture and what a happy baby!
