I wonder if it would be worth the effort to ty via Ancestry or another genealogy site, to locate descendants of the family. I know of one lady who found a quilt and after tracking someone down via a name sewn on the quilt was told it had been their grandfather’s quilt and mistakenly been thrown out. They were delighted to get it back!

What a wonderful story, Martina!

Corey (et. al.), I don't know whether you are aware of this Facebook page but there are some really wonderful photos that have been posted: https://www.facebook.com/bsqtchris/

One of my favorite posts; I just love old French photos, especially weddings!

Iyes....the pictures are great...the two women definitely look like a painting... The last one is fantastic....Leaving for England! This picture looks like a great cover for a book about just that!

I just spent over a year scanning thousands of photos from my 97 year old mother's closet. I sent copies on thumb drives to all my ten brothers and sisters. I also am taking the hard copies and storing them in my closet when Mom has left us. I did this exactly because of what you are showing here. I would go to flea markets and see all these family photos and wonder why nobody cared to keep them.

Thank you for rescuing these precious photos and sharing them with us! Oh, what a wonderful fictional story you could write about this family. Or, as Martina suggested, find the family if there's a last name. I too, immediately thought of a Renoir painting of the sisters!

This are haunting . . .especially the mother and child photo. Sad the families lost these pictures.
