Did you ever go rummaging through your own "antique shop" , the one in your basement or closets or garage, and find the real treasures. The treasure of your own days gone by. Looking through old photos of strangers is fun. Wondering who these people are and where they are from, I get lost in day dreams during my trips to antique and vintage shops. It's when you find your own photos, of the people you know and the history you are familiar with, that is when you really feel like your truly found a treasure.
I did just that. I found these old pictures I have had on my mind lately. I knew I had some vintage photos of my own and last night I went treasure hunting.
This is my Mother, Martha Ella, oh so long ago,well before I was born.

in Germany some years earlier before they came to the U.S.
And here are a couple of my brothers.
