Old photos

What I have achieved today is to print off a copy of a very old, hand tinted photograph.

It had to be taken around 1900 and is of my Great Uncle who sadly died about 6 months after the photo was taken. I have some more of my Gran at various ages as well and I want to create some LOs with them to try and tell the story as I know it. There is only one of her children still alive, my Aunt, and I have got some answers from her so I will be creating some journaling later this evening to go with them.

  2. Lovely photo! I have quite a few 'oldies' that need scrapping too. I'll have to sign in as annonymous as this is the 3rd time I've tried to leave a comment and each time the warning sign has come up! Thank you for commenting on my blog! Regards, Irene from Shimelle's class.

  4. What an amazing keepsake. Thank you for sharing this with us. I have recently been gifted some older photos, but none of them have this hand-tinting effect like yours does.
