I’ve been sorting through envelopes and scanning old photos while preparing the next tree-cutting post. I’v been meaning to scan these for years. It’s really interesting to see the old photos; some I’m having to send to relatives to see if they can identify them, because I have no clue who the people are.
Like this one: all I really know is that it’s Nolemana’s side of the family, back in Indiana, I think.
This is Nolemana’s great-grandmother and her husband; their wedding photo. 1876. Emily Taylor and John Edwards.
The clothes are so interesting, yeah? I mean, try look her waist. It looks really uncomfortable to me. Plus, all those layers of clothes! But it’s fascinating to see how styles have changed from then.
And here they are, years later, in 1920.
I have a bunch more photos; I hope Nolemana’s cousin can give me kokua with who’s who in the photos.
