Today I spent most of my time going through old pictures that I had purchased in Antique Stores. I did minimal research on the photos because at this point it doesn’t make sense for me to have them sitting in file cases and boxes because the photos need some background information.
I usually like to google the photography studios, the photographer and also look up the individuals that have been identified. I am very interested in taking a course in identifying old photographs. I find it difficult to discuss the photo when I am unsure what approximate year it was taken based on the hair styles, the dress attire, the type of furniture, pose and even the type of photograph it is. If anyone knows where a course is available online, let me know.
My grandson stayed the night with me. I have been very impressed with how well he has been eating. He used to be a very picky eater. When he went to bed, he said, “Grandma, you have a lot of books!” I told him that I want to take him shopping so he can pick out some books, because he needs to read. It really is true that our children emulate us. Glad I can be an influence in this way. Maybe he will take to genealogy. He is always asking about the pictures I have on the wall of his great grandparents.
Well this is all for my short insert for the night. I am a little tired…and hope that I will have more time to post a few more photos and post Part #3 of Shober Hairston.
