Stylish cousins George Engel and Lea Penman taken in Denver Colorado 1912. Love Lea's hat! Lea later went on to become an actress on Broadway.

Cathy, that was my 1st thought upon seeing the photo also, but the last time I did that on FB, I got yelled at for changing the photographer's pic. :(

Oh well. I only brought out the original that is taken away from a lot of uploads/pastes. If they yell at me then bye bye. :)

You have to be careful if there's a copyright on the picture - I don't think there is one in this case. But a copyright prohibits adjustments. Also if the artist/photographer is still around they may take offense at playing with their artistic license.

I know, I've been on Flicker for years. I really didn't do anything other than auto adjust. If they take offense I'll delete my photo and then get off of this page.

That photo was taken by Sue Cochran who was Lea's best friend growing up in Denver. And yes Lea was born in Red Cloud, Webster County, Nebraska. You can see the full story of Lea Penman and my Grandfather, George Engel at www.mypresentpast.com
Go to the site map page and click on the Lea Penman link.
The photos are for your enjoyment but are not intended for re-sale or profit. The original photos are in my fire proof safe.

Peggy Boyer I am lucky enough that my family saved a lot of pictures. Some of the info was recorded on the back of the photos. But the majority of the info came from my mother, Ruth Engel Jacobs, who passed away in 1993. I am trying to honor my family, their friends, co-workers and acquaintances by by creating my family website, www.mypresentpast.com
