SHOW & TELL - My Grandma and I
More participants here
When my grandma still lived, and I had the occasion to ask her about her life, I didn't do it. I just didn't think of asking her. Now there are so many things I wished I could ask her about her life, because finally I only know very little.
Yesterday I was looking for a picture and stumbled over these pictures of my grandma in 1907 when she was 21 years old.
I love these old photos where you had to dress up, go to a special photographer who put you in a pose, and then you had to stand still and not move a bit, otherwise you could get 10 heads instead of one.
and here I am at 21 not dressed up and on a bike, but we look very much alike I think.
The typical family photo, my grandpa of course stood straight up, because he was a little smaller as my grandma and a man of course had to be taller. My grandma was a quite tall woman, for that time, actually she had the same size as I.
and again the two of us at the same age.
