Vintage Family Photos

Good morning. Tina here. I am going to share some vintage Gold Country Girl family photos which were given to me a few years ago by my aunt. These photos are from the 1920s.
This is our Gold Country Daddy as a baby in Ohio. I just realized that I don't have any photographs from inside the house. They must have not had flash bulbs in those days. Looking at this photo of Daddy, I can definitely see a family resemblance to just about every baby who has come since. I think it is in the cheeks and the eyelids.
This is our great aunt on the left, our grandma and our daddy again. I think Grandma might have been "with child" carrying our aunt at the time. In this photo our daddy looks a lot like Lori's grandson, or vice versa.
Daddy once again with our grandma. Just to the left of Grandma is a silhouette in the window of our great grandma. I really like the flower boxes on the porch.
This is our grandpa, our great grandma, Daddy, and his little sister. The family resemblance between my grandpa and my son is amazing. Also, I just love the porch here. I could use a trellis like that! Our family moved around a bit before they reached California. I would have loved to see some of these old homes.
Well, that is it for this Wednesday. Hope you enjoyed the old photographs.
