I made the mistake of asking my grandma for more photos to scan. I think I’ll be scanning forever. I staggered home with one lot and there’s more to come. But man, I got some classics. This is my mum in about 1960 with what is arguably the worst Santa EVER. Check out that beard. Words fail me.
This is my grandma as a girl in about 1940 out shopping with her mother. Such style!
My grandfather play fighting with his friend in the Greek/Turkish civil war in 1950. I stumbled on this photo a few years ago and burst out laughing. It was definitely not an image that I thought I’d see of my serious, hardworking grandfather.
And this photo is a real doozy:
My grandmothers aunt as a Orthodox nun in Lebanon in the 30’s. That’s one hardcore looking nun.
I know family history is boring as heck when it’s not your family and even though these are my family I find our history boring too but these photos are so…they really capture a time that has come and gone and will never be again.
