Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.
This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt asks Homo Sepians to focus on what is going on in the background of a photo rather than in the foreground.
In a single photo from about 1934, I spied two happenings in the background that are far more interesting than the intended subject.
Meanwhile her cousin Leota Sullivan is totally bored. Now I’m sure there are three women in this photo, but one is headless although Leota and my great-grandmother Mary Frances Jollett Davis don’t seem to notice or care.

So what was it that the photographer was actually focusing on at the Jollett Reunion?
To see what else is happening in the background, focus on Sepia Saturday.
