My Grandmother - Wordless Wednesday

(Original Image and Text, Copyright (c) 2011 Cynthia Shenette) My grandmother, Antonina (Bulak) Szerejko. I don't have any information on the photo, but my guess is it was taken sometime in the early 1920s.

You have the most glamorous and exotic photos of your grandparents! What a beauty. I love the comb in her hair - and all that lace. Love it.

I agree with all of the comments above. You really do have exotic photos. Why so many pictures, did they work part-time in a photographer's studio?

Thank you all for your nice comments!

I love this photo, too! Neither of my grandparents worked for a photo studio, at least that I'm aware of. My grandmother was a seamstress. She undoubtedly made all of the beautiful dresses she is wearing in the photos. My grandparents were also in plays at their church, and my grandmother sang at church and with the local music festival chorus. I suspect some of the lovely clothes were for performances of one sort or another.

I have so many photos of my mom's family--boxes and boxes. My father's family is the exact opposite. I have practically nothing.

Thank you all again for your comments!
