Way Back Wednesday - Moldy Cheesy Family

Your moldy cheesy family (like "Cheese!" and moldy 'cause it's an old picture...demented and odd, I know)...this week I'm looking for the oldest family photo that you have...hopefully this will highlight some killer fashions of the past!


This is probably the oldest picture of my Mom's family that I have with her in it. The people in the back are my great-grandmother Cooley, Grandpa Lancaster, Grandma Lancaster holding my mom. The kids up front from left to right are Uncle Marvin (my mom's fave brother who has passed on), Aunt Jeannie, Uncle Alan (also passed on - the cancer runs rampant in the fam), and Uncle Ron who went on to be a BAMF football player in Canada. Probably the only picture of my incredibly unaffectionate grandmother actually touching one of her children nicely.

This pic is too cute I think. It is the last 5 girls. There were 10 children in all - my mom being #5. That is her on the far right. Aunt Betty is next to her, then Aunt Dorothy, Aunt Janet and the one on the far left looking annoyed by life is Aunt Shelby. This looks like it was taken at Clairton park which is where my family still has picnics to this day. Gotta love it.

So there you have it - my stab at WBW. Let me know if you played!!!

I don't know about "cheesy", but those definitely fit the "moldy" bill. What great old pictures (And I'm 2nd of 10 so I "feel her".

I played too! ;o)

OK that second one is so dang cute! I have this thing for old B&Ws though...I'd totally have it framed and put in a black wooden frame with a big white matte...sooo cute!

Old photos can be meaningful, not only to the relatives of those in the pics, but to people who are interested in the past. I recently found some of my Uncle Otto when he was a kid in Germany. I have no idea who the folks in the pics are, but I can build all sorts of stories around them.
