My family part III

13 September 11


Possibly the most Ukrainian photo of all time, 1950


My grandma teaching in Odessa 1963/1970


My great-aunt Anya, I wish there were more photos of the house behind her!


My grandma and friends (I see why she loves when I do my hair in crown braids now)


1958

1953


If my great-aunt was a young lady now, she'd totally be a fashion blogger.

1948

I also made a little collection of the place/date stamps from some of the photos, I think they're lovely:

I love how your grandma (she looks adorable but also very strict) looks alike in every single photo of your three posts. From the 50s to the latest pictures of her, she always looks the same. :)

My sister and I are huge fans of your blog—photography, art, and everything else!—and it was such a nice surprise to find out your family is originally from Ukraine (as are we!), now you have even bigger fans! :)

That house is fantastic – wonder what color(s) it was? All the ladys are so pretty, and their hair is all so neat and fancy. Thank you for sharing these with us.
