After seeing John's thread I decided to post a few old family photos as its own topic. I haven't tracked down everything, but hope to post a few more. My Mom's folks were German piano makers in the old country tradition. There was a Co-op or Guild and they had financial interest in the business, until WW1 started. They moved from Germany to Cincinnati, and the Kaiser probably took the piano factory to make guns etc. These photos go back to about 1910 in Cincinnati. They wound up doing woodwork in Covingtown, that would adorn the brownstone towers of Cincinnati. Their son (my great grandpa) worked for the Post Office, and became a successful brewer, building a big house on the hill above town. My dad's paternal side folks were starving Irish farmers, and there are no known photographs of their early existence. They married into a Scott-English family, and came to New York in the late eighteen hundreds. This is Dad's mom & unknown cousin, taken in the 60s. We stayed in their tiny house, in snowy Upstate New York at the edge of town & the Appalachian Foothills. The infamous Johnstown Flood was just a few miles down the road from there. Here's her house, my cousins, uncle and aunts, in the 1990s. That is Grandma on the lower left, also in her 90s. Grandpa was a line supervisor at GE. This is the oldest photo I have of them. That was near Yosemite in 1975.
