New Old Pictures from my Brother

Late this afternoon, I talked to my brother for probably an hour and a half - how fun to reminisce about the old pictures of our mom's family. He had sent me about ten that he had and I didn't although several of them I had seen before. There were also pictures I had never seen including the one below.
In it is our mom, Nan, girl on the right, with two other girls and three fellows. She looks to be a teenager or in very early 20's in this one. We speculated on the bridge - probably in Glen Oak Park where so many of the pictures were taken. Then in the picture belowThis has to have been taken the same day, don't you think? Mom (fourth in middle row) has the same dress on and the same hairdo and a couple of the girls could be the ones in the first picture. It looks like a class - although I don't know for sure if Mom graduated from high school. Goodness, wish more questions had been asked - but at least there are some nice pictures to make us think and contemplate how those who came before us lived their lives. Note the wallpaper - isn't that great? Bud has promised to send me more pictures so Fashion Friday will go on for quite a while. (Click to enlarge)

Great pictures and great questions. My mom's family had a family bible that is very interseting and the little things that they thought to write down are very important parts of my past. I even know where certain illnesses and hereditary traits originated. I guess they all can't be blamed on my husbands side of the family. lol
