I received two photos from Gillian, they are foreign photos.
This is my maternal grand mother Jane Ghee (nee Arnot) (standing) and my maternal great grand mother Jane Arnott.
Jane is our family name for girls and it has been handed down to my sister and now her daughter.
I just LOVE this photo. I love how they are dressed and how they took pictures so seriously!
The second photo is a picture of a group of Sunday School children at Kilmarnock Baptist Church in Scotland, United Kingdom. One of them is my Aunt Jane Ghee but I'm not sure which one.
Large group photo are hardly ever marked.. so they become part of the “Forgottens.” The thing that I noticed about this group photo was the little girl on the end with the open or perhaps ill fitting coat..everyone else looks prim and proper and many have hats. They must be dressed in their “Sunday Best.”
I enjoyed both of these photos..I enjoyed seeing the fur trims on the coats..back in their day they were very elegant. I will guess that the fur coats are from the 1920’s..a time when one button coats with large fur trims were very popular.
I am not a fur expert but the smaller fur appears to be Mink and the larger fur looks like Fox to me. Input is always appreciated!
Thanks Gillian for sharing your old photos!
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
