Me with my mum in Paris. Oversized grey bomber, matching pants with yellow turn up, beaten up white trainers...

Image

... and in London. High waisted pleated pants look pretty good.

My mum was (still is) cool!

My great, great grandparents on my mothers side. I think this is the oldest photo of anyone in our family. We aren't 100% on the date, it was found after Great Grandma died but we believe it was early 1900s.

Dad like 3 years ago taking the kitten out for a walk. She was too young to go out (no shots) but she was so curious about the outside world and it made dad sad to see her a prisioner and worried that she'd get out and get lost.

He took her for walks around the garden (though, from that picture you could argue the inverse) and my sister took this pic that I've kept. I don't have a digital copy as it was a film camera but I really should scan it in.

Got an amazing present the other day from my uncle the other day, my great-grandfather's old boxing shorts. I hear he was a bit of a hotshot back in the day, and won a few regional championships. He was roughly the same age as me when this photo was taken, and shares my name. It wasn't long after he wore these shorts that he was killed by a malfunctioning grenade in WW2. This is easily one of the coolest things I own.

Uncle Alan - oldest of 8 siblings, moved to Seattle, had a mixed-marriage when that was still weird. I assume with 60% confidence this is one of our national parks in SC?

So I found/was given all my parents and grandparents photographs. It's a goldmine of old fits, but I haven't had an opportunity to scan in everything yet, so here's just a taste.
