vintage family photos.

On my recent visit home to Ohio, my mom had a huge box filled with 
old black & white family photos.  Hundreds of them, most with a pencil inscription
of who is in the photo as well as the year. Super organized for a box of random photos.

My mom, Connie, kept emphasizing that they didn't have much money growing up 
on the farm, but judging by their clothes, giant birthday cakes, motorcycles, toys & sheer amount of photos that accumulated... it seems hard to believe.  
But super fun to look at!

All I know is that the girl on the right with the big front wheel is super adorable!
