During my last visit to see my parents, I found a roll of negatives in my bathroom drawer. With no idea of how they got there, I tucked them away in my bag to scan when I returned home, assuming they were my own negatives from when I lived with my parents.
The negatives sat on my vanity for weeks before I decided to scan them – I just figured they were some older negatives from a class or something. To my surprise and delight, the negatives showed photos that had been photographed themselves, I think by my grandmother. It’s very special to find something like this – the photos are from around the time of WWI. They show my great-grandfather’s training before he went to Europe for WWI and of some children that I don’t recognize. My grandmother’s handwriting is on some of them. I assume they were taken by my great-grandfather. Perhaps I can find others that will help me piece these together.
