As further proof that my family never throws anything away (except my dad’s childhood baseball cards):
Yesterday’s entry featured a picture of my mom and my great-grandma in the summer of 1975, looking at old pictures and discussing family history. (Or maybe they were debating the infield fly rule; I’m just guessing here.)
My dad immediately identified the picture in my mom’s left hand …
… as my great-grandma’s wedding picture.
And then, he promptly shot me an e-mail with a digital version of that same photo, 21st-century-style.
So, just for fun, here’s the wedding picture (circa 1909, I believe) of my great-grandma Pauline Krebs and her new husband Wilhelm Blumenau.
Now you, the reader, can feel part of that long-ago family discussion, without having to put up with the grime on the porch, the rush of the traffic or the buzz of the heat-bugs.
