Throwback Thursdays- A Surprise Photo of my Parents Just Married in 1939

My cousin (my dad's side) had a birthday recently and I sent him a card. The next thing I know he had sent me this photo of my mom and dad. He is on one of those anchestor websites and said someone had sent it to him. The second I saw the screen shot name, I knew it was my 2nd cousin Will on my mother's side.

Throwback Thursdays- A Surprise Photo of my Parents in 30's

 

I have so many photos of my parents when they were first married, then during my dad's first 3 years in the military. Then later after my dad re-enlisted in the Army Air Corp to be a pilot and then navigator, she keep photo albums of everywhere they went but I never saw this photo.

I am not sure when or where  it was taken but I am guessing around 1939 in Knoxville, Tennessee maybe as my dad was wearing civilian clothes. I think this was right after they got married. It must have been someone else's dog as they had a black cocker spaniel. 

 

Thought I would share my surprise photo with you.

Thanks for Reading my Real Estate Blog.....

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat 

You never know where one might show up from a distant relative. I loved your salmon ladder post yesterday and the pictures were spectacular.

Hi Bob "RealMan" Timm 

I had seen my mom's photo album for years but as she got older and my dad passed, then I realized how precious these memories. She used to tell me who the other people were in the photos but sadly I never paid too much attention. Love the memories!

Hi Ed Silva 

Take notes of others in the photos so you will know where and when. My mom's photo album was black pages and she wrote in white in the city, stae and dates so I can figure out where there were during the war.

Loved the picture and it reminded me of how we can not ask them about so many subject we do not have the answer to find. Like what was he doing with that dog and I am sure there is a story behind it....Endre

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. 

They both loved dogs and always had one as long as I can remember. My mother took "George" their beloved cocker spaniel all over the country during the war. She would share her time between Tennessee with her mother and when my dad was stationed in the US, she would find a house to rent nearby but she always had George with her. My dad had 6 sisters and I am guessing this might have been one of theirs. I wish I would have listened more carefully when she told me. I never wrote down her recipes as I could just call and ask her and that was a big mistake. I wish I had learned to make tamales as they learned to make them in Corpus Chrisi when they were stationed there. I always thought it was too much work but relish the thought of making them now.

 Good Friday morning Kristen. I find it very interesting to look at some of the clothes as well as hairstyles from years ago.

Hi Michael Thornton 

My mother always dressed very conservatively with dark clothes fitted at the waist and many had white lacy collars and big buttons. I am not sure I had ever seen her in a print dress until the 50's so maybe this was just a special occasion dress!

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. 

Yes and write it down so you don't forget later which is what I did. I really didn't pay too much attention as I thought they would always be there.

Thanks for sharing this old photograph. I is always fun to discover old family photographs. In our case, I wish more had notes.

Hi Roy Kelley 

I bet there is a lot of our relative pictures around that we haven't seen. It was such a nice surprise from my cousin.

Happy Thanksgiving Roy!

Hi Bob Crane 

Yes one of the best surprises I have had in a long time. They had just gotten married and look so happy. This was just before he re-enlisted and when to pilot school. They probably knew the war was coming.
