I love old pictures. Way back then, having your picture taken was something rare unless you were rich and I was not and knew no one who was.
This picture below is actually only 3" x 4" in real size but the scanner makes it big and easy to see.
It shows the way clothes were hung out to dry.
It shows how one squinted into the sun when looking at the camera.
It shows an old barn in the background, appearing closer than it really was so depth in photographs was deceptive.
It shows the simplicity of old toys....just a tricycle with a cute little bell on the handlebars.
It shows that girls mostly wore dresses, home-made ones, of course.
It shows that yards were mostly weeds and not closely mowed as yards are today.
And it shows that little child, my nephew, looking like an absolute doll. And in case you wonder, I am on the left and my big sister is on the right.
