Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.
Alan’s intention with this week’s Sepia Saturday photo of a perplexed boy holding 2 geese is to see what crazy or odd photos we all have stashed away. I have a couple amusing ones.
Chug! Chug! Chug!
My grandparents Lucille (far left) and Orvin Davis (the man) are with 3 others whom I don’t recognize. However, I think that’s Granddaddy’s cousin Vessie Jollett Steppe who is being fed something to drink. Can’t she hold her own bottle? And then some boy is standing on his head while a little girl barely makes it into the shot with her foot in the air, high kick style. With so much puzzling action, this photo makes me laugh whenever I look at it.
From my Aunt Velma’s album, here’s her buddy Virginia Cole thumbing her nose at the camera. Tsk Tsk! That was probably far more shocking in 1925 than it is today.
Girl to immediate left is Olive Williams.
Velma on the right is cut off.
The man and other woman are unknown.
On Dasher! On Dancer!
Whoever Gertrude and Evan Sholl were, they probably scared the children of all the family and friends who received this Christmas card from them. Nothing says "holiday" like freshly gutted deer.

found among photos belonging to Helen Killeen Parker
Apparently gun safety in 1919 was not the serious business it is today.
