Below is one such photo.
From the picture, we learn that this woman is leaning against a car and holding a notebook of some sort. She has a pair of scissors hanging by a thread around her neck. We guess that this might be my Great Grandfather's sister, Bertha, because she was a seamstress and perhaps the scissors are a clue to that?
Any clue as to what year the cars might be?
Next, we have two photos of this couple. The woman in these photos is the same woman in the photo above.
I assume that this couple is married because, if you look at the photo on the left, the woman has a ring on her finger. But, we don't have any further information about them.
Were they vacationing when these photos were taken?
Was one of houses the house that they lived in?
In the photo on the right, did you notice the
I'm guessing it is around the 1920's according to her hairstyle, but if this is Bertha she died in 1918 at age 29. The man is wearing a very short thin tie and has a cigar (which was common for men anyway!). They both have a similar style of round glasses- which are the same glasses the woman is wearing in the first photograph. I also love the man's checkered socks in the photo on the left! Very stylish!
This photo is also of the same couple, but at a later date because she looks older. Were they camping when this photo was taken? Or maybe they were just out for a Sunday stroll... They must have been with someone else, because who would have taken the picture? I notice there is a pond behind them.
If only...they had written it on the film- at the time.
All these questions, but so few answers. A few minutes for them to write down names and dates would have saved us hours of investigation.
This is a Sepia Saturday post. I invite you to read the other Sepia Saturday posts here.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
Post Edit: If this is Bertha she was born on 7 Oct 1888 in Steubenville, Jefferson County, Ohio. She married William R. Henderson on July 11, 1906 in Steubenville. They had one son, William O. Henderson, born 1909/1910. Bertha died May 14, 1918.
