Sylvia and Sherwin

  Here are four adorable postcards of two children from Connecticut named Sylvia and Sherwin Epstein in 1922.   I bought fifty of these old photos from a vendor at the flea market today.  They are a wonderful set.  The photos are of several families that are related over a fifty year period from 1880 - 1930's.  Many are marked with the names and others you can tell who they are by seeing previous photos.   I'll be posting many of these over the next few weeks.  I hope you enjoy them as much as my daughter and I.  It is so fun to see this family evolve from the old country to an American family.

I wonder what Sylvia and Sherwin were thinking as they were having their pics taken? I used to hate to have my portraits/photos made - they are adorable.
