Suitcase Negatives

Over the weekend I finally went through an old suitcase of my grandmothers'. Inside were dozens upon dozens of old and uncared for negatives. Some showed my mother as a child, some of people no one remembers.
Tucked away in a yellowed envelope was a poorly folded roll of 35mm film from the beginning of my grandparents relationship in the early 1950's.

I have always felt that connecting with the past is important, and seeing these images of a woman that I was so close to, and love so much makes me feel that much closer to her.

 The little boy is my Uncle Andrew, from my grandmothers first marriage during World War II.
