Is This My Family?
Mother and her Two
Many of us inherited these photographs from our parents or grandparents, but we were never told who these people were, and unfortunately nothing was written on the photograph backing. Could they have been members of our family, and if so, who were they?
Can you imagine standing still in a photographic studio for a family photograph?
If you were
posing for such a photograph with members of your family, how would you
like to be portrayed? In a dressy outfit? Would you want to smile, or
would you want to appear more serious?
Why do you
think the family went to the studio to have a photograph made? Was it for
a special occasion? What reasons might the father not be in the photograph?
