OLD PHOTOS PROMPT FORGOTTEN MEMORIES

Age 4, France
While rummaging through boxes in the basement, Clark brought up an envelope which contained some old family photos that had belonged to my aunt Irene (my mother's sister).  After her parents passed away, my cousin Kathy had sent them to my mom several years ago.

And there are others we found  in an envelope labeled with my name  after my mother moved to an assisted living facility.

Here are a few I'd like to share.

Do old photos bring forth fond memories for you?
