An Old Photo

I found an old photo today. A photo of my grandparents house in Minneapolis Minnesota (on Hennepin), when their family was young and there were diapers on the clothes line. I recognize my grandfather’s handwriting on the reverse side of the photo. When they were newly married my grandparents lived there in Minneapolis, on Hennepin Avenue. The house looks large, to accommodate the young couple, Auntie my grandfather’s sister, and their growing family – twin daughters and 2 additional daughters.

Friend family home on Hennepin. Minneapolis Minnesota approx 1912

Reverse side of the photo, my grandfather’s handwriting my mother Dorothy was born in 1912

I like my grandfather’s note – “Please excuse the diapers hanging on the clothesline.”

Note: the family moved to Omaha Nebraska a year or 2 later
