(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: Family of Karl Gustaf Adolf Klarstrom, Sweden

I just love this picture of my great-grandmother’s brother and his family. Especially the boy in the sailor suit.  For some reason those sailor suits just make me smile.:)

Besides this being a lovely picture of my great-granduncle’s family, it also shows the various pictures they had hanging on their wall.  The one second from the left is a picture I recognize – it’s my great-grandmother and her family.   I love searching old pictures for details and clues.

I wonder if this picture was taken for a special occasion.  Everyone looks dressed very nice {even the little girl has a lovely necklace on} and there is a gorgeous vase of flowers on the table.

I wonder where all of those photos are today.  Are they hanging on someone’s wall?

    As you know, I just got a ton of photos from my mother’s storage unit – they’d been in there for over 30 years! What’s funny is that when I scanned the first photo and sent it to my siblings and one cousin, my cousin came back and said “I have this hanging on my wall”. Not only did she have it on her wall, she had no idea who it was! And several of the other photos on her wall were also in the storage unit. Geez.ReplyCancel

      Too funny!! Yes, when family members took a special family photo like that, those were the ones that were shared with everyone. I’m taking my Flip Pal with me this summer when I go to visit my parents. I’m hoping to stop and see some of my parents siblings and cousins to see if they might have any pictures or documents I could scan and share with everyone.ReplyCancel

    Maybe it is the black and white or sepia coloring, but the people in old photos often seem so distinguished and respectable. The man in the center of the pic looks like he could be a banker or the mayor. Maybe it’s just me.ReplyCancel
