Old Family Pictures

My aunt sent me an album of old family pictures. I like looking at old pictures to see the details in the background. Like a picture of my grandmother from 1912 shows a stack of newspapers. When you zoom in on the papers you can see headlines from the first Balkan War Turkish defeat in Greece. In another picture you can see the house number that corresponds to census records that I found. Since these are family pictures it’s also neat to see family resemblance between the generations.

Included in the set were pictures before and after the 1938 New England Class 5 Hurricane.
