Some More Photos of the Epstein's

I have posted a few more of the vintage photos from 1910 -1914 I got at the flea market last week.  They really are a treasure.  I love this series showing Sylvia's parents who were very handsome and then Sylvia as she gets older.  It makes me sad to think a family has lost this history so I have adopted them.  Most of these photos and photo postcards were sent to an aunt Annie.  Perhaps it went to a family member of Annie's when she died and by this generation no one knew who the Epstein's were.

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.

Saturday Image Bonus 173

This week we have images from a 1921 edition of Gritli's Children by Johanna Spyri.  Johanna Spyri also wrote Heidi.  I found this book last week at the flea market along with 6 more wonderful books  Each one of those books are one hundred years old or more.  Make sure to check my other blog Digital Two for Tuesday for some line drawings from this book.

A Few Good Men

Some old photos and tintypes I had in my stash. The men in these pictures are a mystery.  I like to think they are good men who lived a full life.  I often wonder what happened to their families that these photos were no longer wanted.
