I have come to appreciate photos with names on the back. We recently inherited some pictures from my wonderful husbands Aunt and Uncle's home. We have seen pictures never seen by our eyes before. Pictures of his grandparents, of his parents when they were young and cousins. I see old homes and cars and once again long to get my photos dated and named.
Most pictures are handed down when there is a death in the family and then put away until later and others in the family may never get to see them. All the photos from my husbands childhood went to his oldest sister when his mother passed. Recently his sister passed away and I don't know where these pictures are now. Not only would she have recognized many in the photos, she knew stories and family connections, the history. That information is now gone. I am making note to talk to my nieces about these pictures today. We need to sit down and go through them.
