Wordless (nearly) Wednesday - 1936 Photoalbum - Flock

Wordless (nearly) Wednesday - 1936 Photo album - Flock

Another page from Mom's 1936 photo album - farm scenes: the chickens; Leo was her older brother, Buzz her younger brother.


Families are Forever!  ;-)

  1. I love her captions! "Leo and his flock" and "In front of the lilac bush". The Lilac bush must have been "special"! :)

  2. Love the Photos! But where were they taken? Missouri? Unfortunately I couldn't get them to enlarge enough to read the captions.

  3. Loved these! They so remind me of my own mother's photo album from the '40's! Mom wrote captions for every photo she kept! Gotta love those Mom's who did that!!!

  4. Thank you for the comments!

    Mom was a "Coon Rapids, Iowa" girl - born and raised and very proud of it. Mostly a town girl, growing up. Lived on a farm, up to seven miles from town as an adult, but never any farther away her whole 80+ years. West central Iowa. ;-)

  6. I have the same comment. My Mom's older photo albums were also captioned in white pencil. When I scan the old photos, I like to also include her handwritten comments, too. That's ALOT of chickens!!!
