These old photos are very special to have and to preserve for future generations.
Great photo!!
Wonderful photo- looks like the Victorian Era. It may have been taken after a funeral if her dress is all black.
I bet you are very thankful for this camera shot!!
Beautiful dress- worth keeping for future generations!!
This could be a wedding photo of my great grandmother.
Beautiful photo- no name though?
Beautiful castle- thank you for sharing. My maternal relatives were from Ireland too. I have been to Ireland and it felt like I was home. :-)
So tragic for a family to endure. My cousin married Ed Barry from Chicago and raised their family near there. I know they went back to Ireland to visit their Barry relatives.
That is so sad-
Wow!! I love it!!

Thank you Kathy: The "Roaring Twenties" must have been something to experience. I have more to share and will do so in the hopes of finding someone who can tell me who some of the people are in...
Great photo and very handsome. Thank you for sharing.
I am glad you enjoyed the photo. I just wish the photo had been dated!!
