Family Photos

I found some old pictures of my grandparents that I wanted to share. In love history and looking at old photos.
This is of my dad’s parents, growing up in New Orleans, they got married in the early 1950’s.

My grandfather played football and baseball. He was an amazing baseball player and was going pro after college but he threw his shoulder out. Check out some of the clippings and photos I found in his scrapbook:

  1. I love finding old photographs! My grandmother often takes out a bunch she has saved. It’s so cool to see pictures of people she has talked about but I didn’t get to meet. I also love to see my grandparents when they were younger.

  2. I always love going through old photos! My grandfather is very big into genealogy (my grandmother was at well), so he’s constantly coming across new photos to share. My mom recently sent me a copy of one of my great-grandmother (my grandfather’s mom) holding my mom. It was the last photo taken of my great-grandmother before she passed away. Its always fun to look through the photos and see family resemblance – when I opened the envelope and saw the picture I instantly could tell that she was my grandfather’s mother.

  3. Aww loves these! Your grandparents look really sweet — and I definitely see a family resemblance. I’m guessing the athlete was your dad’s dad? They look alike!

  4. How awesome! I love looking through old family photos! It’s amazing to see how young our grandparents looked!

  5. we have ours hanging all over the house.
    I LOVE the feeling of being surrounded by my ancestors.

  6. I love looking at old pictures!! It seems like a different world (well I guess it was!) – it’s so cool to learn about your parents and grandparents when they were young!!

    Aww beautiful pictures Heather.

    Of course! I adore looking at oldies but goodies! Can’t imagine anyone that wouldn’t enjoy some fab history.

    These photos were very unique in the 40’s, 50’s & even 60’s. Just nice.

    We have lots and lots in our household. For many years I’ve had mom & dad’s wedding photos (2) displayed. Pic of my daddy’s mama from when she was very young are gorgeous. So interesting to see and have.

    Thanks for sharing.

  9. Those are beautiful pics! Post more 🙂
