Grandma and Mum in Germany 1921

Birgit Harris

Year Taken: 1921

This photo was taken in May 1921. It is of my mother aged 2 and her parents. My mother huddles up closely to her mum. There are further 2 adults, women and 3 toddlers, 2 girls, 1 boy. The outfits they are wearing are very representative of the time. The girls' big hair bows are just lovely. The situation is a leisure pose in front of river or lake with big stone boulders and lush trees. Whilst the photo is depicting a relaxed family situation the postures of the people photographed are slightly more formal. The photo depicts an idyllic moment of peace.

This is a generation before I moved to Scotland.
