Scanning, Scanning, Scannnnnnning!
I have pretty much spent the day scanning. I've finished one photo album between 1948 to 1963 and I'm exhausted. I'm sorry to admit that I'm glad we were too poor to have our own camera in those old days. I'm not doing my mother's pre 1948 photos yet because I know my brother will want to adjust the scanner to handle those photos with more care.
I did scan this photo of me with my parents and grandmother (paternal). It was a rare photo taken in a studio. I was the first born so they probably wanted to document it. I think it's rather interesting to see the fashion of the time. My mother sewed all my clothes in those days, right down to the underwear.
Here's my kindergarten class. Can you guess which kid I am? Clue: Even back then, I had to be a teeny bit different. Perhaps I didn't understand the photographer when he told the kids to stand tall and look straight ahead. I think this was the first and last time I was in the middle row. After this, I was always smack dab in the front. Sigh... I guess my growth spurt came much later.
Answer: I'm in the middle row, third from the right.
