What was the world like back then? Genealogist as Historian

30 Nov

First, I’m happy to report that the neglected cemetery has been cleaning up and the stones stand tall in the sunshine once again (photo to come).

I found some pictures of Dad when he was just four years old … I often ask myself what the world was like back when Dad was a child. I found these pictures:

Dad in 1927 (age 4) – his socks were probably hand knit – such a sweet little boy, grew up into a sweet man

Dad a few years later with his maternal grandparents – Bridget and Martin Bowman – this must have been a particularly hard time for the family since this picture was taken during the depression era
