Photo Hunt: In Memory

These photos are fairly old and it’s quite obvious I didn’t take any of them…

  2. What wonderful family pictures… I have boxes of them too and really need to get them scanned into the computer so they won’t be lost forever. I also need to get some of the people identified so we will know the stories behind the pictures. Great job.
