Vintage Family Photo Heaven

My dear uncle recently entrusted me with a box of old family photographs. One goes as far back as 1911. This one I am absolutely in love with:

This is a photograph of my maternal grandmother, Alice Wentworth, taken in either 1912 or 1913. The dress....the pure innocence of the photo...I am so enamored by it!

I have a feeling that the history in some of these photos and the months of research my uncle spent on the Wentworth family tree will be pursued further by me as soon as I can find the time to do it. Unfortunately, there a lot photos with no dates or names noted so they may stay unknown -- which bums me out.

Here's a photo of my grandmother as an infant with a family friend in 1911 when  Ferndale Bridge in Humboldt County, California, was being built.

OK, on a completely unrelated topic: Who is watching "The Bachelorette" and who do you think Jake will pick in the end? :)

isn't it great to have old photo's like that? They are the real treasures! I'm lucky enough to have been able to borrow a lot of old photo's to scan.
