VPOD for 1/1/15- Lydia


Another really old photo.   From the writing on it I am assuming this is of someone named Lydia.   It’s kind of a haunting picture with the way she’s looking at the camera.  It most likely wasn’t taken in Southern California with the snow on the ground.    I know I have some family roots in and around the Benton Harbor area in Michigan so maybe that’s where this was taken?  It may just be the fading of the photograph but it looks like she’s not very happy to be getting her picture taken, but then again people didn’t really smile in pictures like we do today.  Saying “CHEESE” I guess is a more recent concept that we adapted.   Back then pictures were serious business.

So anyway,  that’s Lydia 🙂
