My Mum is still very healthy at 96 yrs old, she asked me on Sunday to open a trunk full of her personal things to get a bundle of letters from my Dad to her when they were courting.I not keen to open the trunk because I new the contents would upset me. I found lots of old pics some made me smile. These two did, my kid brother and me and my Mums Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Puck. Have you any old pics of yourself?

What a handsome pair. Photos become so much more important when we pass a certain stage in life. It's not a particular age, but a realization of what is most important.

Thanks for sharing.

Great pictures!

zero to sixty in the blink of an eye

How great! What a handsome pair! I love old photographs, and because of that I wound up with all of them for two families, mine and my husband's. We decided not to have kids, so I took all of mine and sent them back to my family for my siblings to have for their kids. But there really isn't another generation to send my husband's to, which is sad. Yes, I have old pictures of myself, but honestly don't know how to scan and post any more! Maybe when computer guy comes by.

oooooooooooh, I'm in Claire's shoes. (long story...) I've 'become' the family custodian - pix from my great aunt, grandparents, parents, in-laws and our own. slides and photos and home movies. I've been scanning them - about 6,200 to-date and that's just slides and photo albums - haven't gotten to the shoe boxes, of which there is a scary quantity....

scanning them to digital is one effort - identifying people/places/dates and putting captions on them is another huge undertaking!

Neither my sister nor I have any kids. I'm trying to make my old photos available to cousins, etc. Almost all are in Europe, so it pretty much has to be via the web.

One of me at age three | Farmor (my dad's mum) on the left, well into her '80s | Farfar (dad's dad in Swedish, but actually just Farmor's husband, and a real granddad to me and my sister).

Thank you for contributing some great pics and for the kind comments
Tax that's a good sized Pike and Sabre.
My Mum's dad is on the horse I never met him but I was told that I share a lot of his attributes. Here are some more I scanned.

This is quite freaky for me, my Dad appears to have shared my dress sense.
