Adopting a Vintage Family Photo
Who are these children? I have no idea...
While exploring a re-sale shop last week end, I came across the photo.
I picked it up and saw that it was $8.95...a little pricey for me, especially for someone I didn't know.
The longer I was in the store, the more I thought about their sweet little faces. I just couldn't leave them behind.
She is a precocious sweetheart with natural blonde hair, who, today, is probably in her 90's.
Look at how he is posed with folded hands...such a gentleman at an early age, if only for the few minutes of the photo.
So, I bought the photo and am now looking for the right frame. Who knows, maybe someone will see it on my blog and recognize the family.
The photographer was Fred Jorns from Girard Illinois. The clothes tell me it was probably taken the early part of the 1900's.
Have you ever been tempted to purchase a vintage photo?
I'm wondering how it traveled all the way to Texas from Illinois.
