This is something I’ve been wanting to do but only found the time during Chinese New Year break to go through the fifty family albums – big and small – we have at my parents’ place. Some of the photographs have been partially or completely destroyed due to an unfortunate event of a small flood but I still managed to pick out many favorites that I have digitized as keepsakes.
The ones I’m sharing today are of my paternal grandparents and their children (my father is the middle child in the photograph below) in the 1950s. I took these photographs out of a beautifully kept album in black that I found for the first time this year; my mother says it was handed down to her from my paternal grandmother whom, sadly, I never met because she passed away before my parents were married.
I have planned a series of posts to share these beautiful vintage photographs of my family and if you have access to your own family albums, I urge you to do the same – I would really, really love to see vintage family photographs from all over the world.
