As I went, I found that the pictures were loosely grouped by when they were taken. But if Mama had put them directly into albums as the pictures were developed, I would think they would have been very specifically grouped. So, I’m guessing that Mama collected her photos in a box or drawer (as I have done!) for possibly years before she started putting them in albums. So, I did try to rearrange them a little and group them as I went. And I did some random labeling with a white pen when I thought it was appropriate.
There is one page I am a little worried about because I did a little editorializing with my white pen.
Rusty was my sister Jean Marie’s first husband and the father of her two oldest children. And there was this group of photos of them with a group of friends when they were dating. But there were several pictures of Jean Marie with another guy in the group too — so I speculated that she might have dated both Rusty and him!
However, I have since talked to my sister Betty Rose and she said the other guy was just another member of the group (which included her and her boyfriend/future husband too). So I may have to go back and put another picture of something over my speculation.
Anyway, it’s done. And I did my best. I hope future generations enjoy looking at these photos half as much as I enjoyed looking at them as I put them on their new pages!
