A found photo from 1909 Iowa, the owner did some research and Anna (Klein) Moore Harmon must have been 65 yr old. What an artistic photo of a grandmother!

I know that a lot of people like colorized photos - personally, I like the original photo without "enhancements"

The woman in the photo looks 80 not 68

Shannon Michelle our grandmothers (of my generation) did look older...their lives weren't filled with modern technology and ease that exists for us today.

Why did people age themselves so much back then? She looks 80

Shannon Michelle Probably hard work at a farm and many childbirths, tougher life circumstances overall compared to modern life.

I agree - hard life of hard work and very limited medical care back then. People aged more quickly. Life expectancy for her generation might have been about 45 years? Having 4-5 children was normal. Ads up to a rough life!

I love her hair 😍
Richard Woitowitz
Wowzers! I bet she read the papers during the Civil War. Probably had some interesting thoughts about it.

Women's hats back then were SOMETHING! (I assume that's a hat in her lap?)

As I look at this picture it occurs to me how astonishing society has changed from then till now. What would that lady think of us?
