Even More Thirteen Throwback Thursday Photos – Aunt Mary and Mom

Here are even more Thirteen Throwback Thursday Photos! These are scans of old school photos from my Mom and Aunt Mary’s side of the family, and I’ve been trying to get at least thirteen scanned each time, in the hopes of making a dent in my huge family photo collection.

Here’s a list of the posts I’ve done so far this month – I’ll update it with other throwback posts I’ve done soon, so it will be easier for interested friends and family members to keep track.

Oh, and to explain a bit more, if you haven’t bumped into one of these posts of mine before…

Over the years, I’ve made attempts off and on to scan & cleanup some of the bazillion old school photographs I have stored in a bankers boxes in our upstairs hall. Earlier today I realized it’s been a while, so I thought I’d do another batch, and turn it into a Throwback Thursday post. I decided to go with the box labelled, “Mom and Aunt Mary” since they’re both (like so many of us) staying at home and I figured they might enjoy a little trip down memory lane.

To narrow it down a bit further, I decided to pick thirteen (because that makes for a nice, alliterative title), and then separated the color photos out and went with the monochrome shots. I tried not to overthink it, and just grab mainly the first ones I grabbed. I say mainly because a couple were of people and places I didn’t even recognize – that’s what happens when you have four (maternal grandmother, my parents, mine, and my husband’s) photo collections all living together. 😊

I don’t have much info on these other than the obvious (pictures of Mom and Aunt Mary…lol). The large majority of these were taken in Gloucester, Massachusetts with a couple that I believe are from a vacation somewhere in New Hampshire. I tried to clean these up a bit without making them look over-processed. I hope you enjoy!

Now for even more Thirteen Throwback Thursday Photos of Mom and Aunt Mary Faye!

1. Aunt Mary far right, Mom is the taller girl to the left of her. Not sure who the other girls are or where this was taken, but it’s probably around the late 1940s.

3. Mom in the middle, and I think this was at a zoo – maybe even Benson’s Wild Animal Farm (which opened in 1926, and this was probably mid1940s).

4. This picture didn’t clean up as well as I’d hoped, but you can still make out my Aunt in the green dress on the far left (not the girl in the center).

6. Another one that didn’t clean up very well, since it was blurry to begin with, but I couldn’t resist this shot of Aunt Mary with her mom (my Nana Souza), sometime in the mid 1940s

  1. Great trip into a distant past. I love people’s facial expressions in old photos, before the universal Colgate smile took over. Very real.

  2. Wallace Stevens wrote a poem “13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.” Your feathered friends posts is crossing over into Mom and Aunt Mary territory now. 🙂 Always appreciated.
