My daughter has been decorating the kitchen, and she decided to hang these old photos that came with the house. The frames needed repairs, so I took the opportunity to scan the photos. (Click for larger view.)
I wish I knew who the people were, or when the photos were taken. The house shows changes over the years. Eventually, the back porch was closed in to create a pantry and laundry room off the kitchen.
The horse cart picture has a date across one corner. It looks like 9/1908.
This young boy has taught his pony a trick: to step up on a box or something — I can’t quite see what.
Can anyone identify this car? The boy looks sweet with a bouquet for his mother. I wonder if that’s her in the driver’s seat.

I love these photos! How awesome!
How wonderful! Both that you had the pictures and that you’re letting your daughter do the decorating!
Letting my daughter decorate has been interesting. She chose a brick-red paint that looked so dark, I had major doubts—but the finished room looks GREAT! Too bad I don’t have enough spare change around to let her do some real remodeling.
Awesome photos and what a wonderful way to use them. This will be a unique statement in your house – you will never lack for a conversation starter if you ever need one!
