Old Photographs ~ Article from Readers Digest ~ “Mothers in Hiding”

image

I found this in Readers Digest the other day. I hadn’t ever thought about mother’s being disguised in the pictures. I always thought it was amazing that the children sat still for the period of time it took to take the picture.  I can barely catch my children smiling and standing still long enough with a digital camera.   Now, I will have to go back through all my old photographs and see if there is anybody disguised. The photos I’ve recently reviewed do not have anybody.

I found some articles with more pictures of hidden mother’s. They are kind of scary and creepy and that doesn’t even include the one’s that are post mortem.

Those Places Thursday ~ West Union School Yearbook 1916 – 1917

This was my Great Grandma Jessie Opal CONN FENN BRITTON yearbook from when she was in 8th grade at West Union School.  The book was made of paper with pictures glued in it. I believe some of her siblings are in the younger grades.
