Flashback Friday #4

Since I have posted photos of my parents when they were younger and of my mother as a child, I searched through the storage bin for the envelope of old photos of my father's family. I really liked this one, taken at the beach in 1919. The little boy is my Daddy. He would have been around two and a half. His mother is second from the left and his father is on the far right. I don't know who the other three are but I like the attitude of the woman in the center!

This is the same photo after someone artfully applied some color. Can't say how accurate the colors are to true life but I do know that my Daddy had red hair just that shade!
I love the tent...and the cars! Would you wear a swimsuit like that? (I think I probably should!)

You always have the greatest old photos! I love their little beach cabana and the cars in the background. So cool!

Those are neat photos. I love going back in time and searching through the old ones. Check out my blog today if you want - I've got some photos of me as a little girl!

I love old photos and, I have to admit, I like the bathing suits too. I could cover up so many problem areas with one of them babies!

What a great old photo. I have so many of these in a box that I got when my grandmother died. I probably don't know who most of them are. Thanks for stopping by the other day!
