Wow -- how much work it must have been to find 13 relevant photos with just the right numbers of subjects. Well done!

I posted a TT also. Feel free to drop by and enter my contest while you're visiting. Thanks.

I love that really old photo. Almost all our of our family photos became victims of bombing during two world wars. It's really nice to have a visual image to go along stories handed down.

Fabulous bit of photography on that White Point Beach shot. ;)

Alice Audrey said...

I love the picture of your In-Law's bridal party.

Barbara said...

Looks like a lot of great get-togethers. Fun idea for a list.

Family photos are precious, what did people ever do when photos didn't exist. Not everyone could afford to have portraits done. I really like #6 and #8, history captured! Happy TT. :)
