Sepia Saturday Feb. 23

Good morning or good afternoon to you.

This week's Sepia Saturday prompt is an image of an unknown family.  From my perusing of antique stores here in the Midwest USA, I have picked up some unknown family groups also.  It is sad but true that photos leave their albums, or never get in an album.  And it's true that photos do not stay with the family, and end up at auctions or antique stores.


This photo is from Fairborn Indiana but there is no information on the back as to who this mother and daughter may be.  What pulled me into this photo is the real love and happiness shown here.  It is one of my favorites.

Please visit this week's Sepia Saturday for more unknown photos from the various contributors.

You are right. Such sweet smiles. Truly innocent.

Very lovely open faces. Whoever they were, they seemed very content.

These is no need for anyone to ask them to say 'cheese.'

I agree with you that there is something rather sad about these family photographs being lost and put up for sale without a context. But it is good that they have not just been thrown away, the live on and can now be seen throughout the world.

I'm glad I clicked to enlarge it and I can see why it's a favourite. Also, enlarging it means we can appreciate the detail of their clothes. It's one of those times when you wish they were in colour!

They look very happy and relaxed together.

The affection between them really comes through. I'd love to see the details of their clothing in color too.

A honey of a picture- very happy, especially the little girl. It is amazing how and where many photos end up!

A charming portrait indeed - none of that stuffy Victorian reserve in this one. Thanks for sharing it.

Such a beautiful photograph. It's so unusual to see a photo from that era where the people are smiling. They both have wonderful, sweet smiles.

Like many others I've collected old photos, I find them fascinating, but what happened to the family to which they belonged.

Some faces just stir the imagination and invite one to make up stories about them. And, for that reason alone they are worth collecting.
