Salt Springs:

 


Susie: My relatives at a wedding in Northern Michigan in the 40's. My grandpa is holding the fiddle, which I now own and play. I never got to meet him, he died before I was born, in 1959. My great grandfather is next to him.

 

Good photo, let's hear that fiddle.............smiler


Put it this way, I'm no Charlie Daniels on the fiddle.

Couldn't figure out to get the photo in here.  Great-grandfather on a cattle drive from Texas to Kansas when he was a young man.  He lived to be 96 or 97, so it would be in about 1877

That's a great photo...............

An interesting old photo of a zither player.   This photo is in an album that belonged to my great grandmother which eventually made its way to me after she died at 106.   This album contains lots of photos from the early 1900's including the maiden flights of several zeppelins taken in 1915.

However, I thought it might of interest to post this one of a field hospital during World War I depicting wounded  German Soldiers, Surgeons and Nurses.   My grandmother is the nurse on the left if I remember correctly............I remember her telling of many surgical procedures being done without anesthesia or adequate supplies.

Thanks Jan! That helps, I kind of figured the third one was old by the way they dressed. Here's another one, I think it was taken around 1916 when my Grandfather was posted in Columbus, New Mexico after Pancho Villa's raid. At first I thought they were railroad workers, but after a closer look I think they were miners. The photo was in bad shape so I tried to clean it up digitally.

Charles, the second photo looks to be from the mid 1920's to the 30's and the third photo looks like it was taken in the 1860's.  Don't know if that helps, any!

This is Robert Owen.  He was my great-grandmother's Uncle.  This photo was taken in Scotland.  Judging by his apparent age, I'm guessing in the 1870's or 80's.
