My first memories of my maternal aunts were as middle-aged (at least) women. Perspective: My mother was the 10th of 11 children. She was 30 when I was born, so her sisters ranged in age at that time from 34 years to 48 years old. For a small child, they seemed “old”.
I had a fresh look at these women when a cousin recently sent me a box of old photos including some of my aunts’ wedding photos. It was wonderful to see my aunts as lovely young women.
I scanned these photos and then took advantage of the colorizing service offered by MyHeritage. You may need to be a member to take advantage of this service.
They are posted below along with a photo of my maternal grandmother that was probably from the mid 1890’s judging by her dress.
