(Not So) Wordless Wednesday – Family Portrait (Unknown)


Found this in the same antique store as the WWII postcards. The imprint on the side says Wolffe & Leonhardt, Wilmersdorf, Augusta str. 1.

No clue of who these people are or when this was taken. Anyone with any suggestions feel free to leave a comment, I would really love to get this back to some related to the individuals in this photo.

Happy Searching!

(Not So) Wordless Wednesday – Unknown Military Men in Paris, France Photo


 

 

I found this photo is an antique store in Alabama.  The back of the photo says taken by the fountain which is in the center of Place de la Concorde.

This is The Fountain of River Commerce and Navigation, one of the two Fontaines de la Concode (1840) on the Place de la Concorde, Paris, France. In the background is the Hôtel de Crillon and to the left is the Embassy of the United States of America. I believe this was taken in the 1940s during WWII.

If any one recognizes any of these men, please let me know!

Happy Searching!

(Not So) Wordless Wednesday – Lindsay Family Portrait


My mom came back from Michigan this week and brought me lots of goodies! Including a bunch of new photographs for me to share! So on this Wordless Wednesday (well Not So Wordless), I thought I would share my favorite picture so far!

This is my Great-Grandparent’s Oscar and Edith Margaret Basham Lindsay and my grandfather Oscar Rowan Lindsay. I believe this picture was taken in Canada and by guessing about how old my grandpa was, I’m thinking it was about 1919.

Happy Searching!
