Anyway (and sorry for starting a ramble), my grandma took out her two shoeboxes of photographs, and while we didn't find any of my great-grandma in her dress, we found an astonishing number of pictures from the mid-50s, when my grandma and her sisters were young, and even a couple of my great-grandma, when she was a young girl.

Most of the pictures of my grandma were actually taken by one of her boyfriends. The really romantic story is how they got to be in her posession, because they both got married to other people, but over 40 years later, after both had been widowed, they met again and started a relationship.
So, yes. A family history in pictures. I hope I didn't overwhelm you with all of those. I really love them, though, and I'm glad that my grandma inherited them from her boyfriend.
Do you have any old pictures of you parents or grandparents?
