Beautiful photo! I always like to imagine what was going on at the time old photos are taken. From just my personal family research, I have learned many things shown in these, back then it was a big thing to have your picture taken! Look, dressed in what appears to be Sunday best, suits, dresses, and all family members gathered together. Pictures were a big deal, and some families were not able to afford to pay to have many taken. A real treasure of a preserved piece of time for ancestors. Thank you for sharing!

It's funny you say, you wonder what it was like back then for them. After truly knowing (some of) my family's history, I always put myself in their shoes while looking at their old photos. I have more photos to come that I would like to share!
