Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.
This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt pays tribute to ties and suspenders. If my ancestors wore suspenders, they didn't put them on display. But there were ties a-plenty in the photos passed down to me.
Fred and Julia Slade
In the early 1950s, my dad was a bow tie
kinda guy, much like his dad.
In the 1920s, my great aunts’ beaus sported bows. Bow ties, that is.
|In Velma's scrapbook, this is|
captioned "CM and Teddy."
"Teddy" was Violetta's nickname.
But I don't know who CM was.
|Woody Woodring sometimes|
wore a bow tie.
|Velma liked it so much, Woody wore a bow tie|
at their wedding in 1927.
