Life on the Connecticut Shore

Photos from Family Archives
 My grandmother, on the Connecticut shore, with her mother, her brothers, various cousins, and winning her diving competition, in the early 1900s.

A reader had his friend colorize this photograph:

  1. Wonderful photos! Thank you so much.

  2. How thrilling to have had a mother who was an athlete!

  3. Hi Muffy,

    My friend colorized the photo of the two boys on the boat with the American flag, how can I send a copy of it to you?

  4. Of the three pictures with three people, the middle person caught my eye in each, then the picture of the youngster with the cap/hat is interesting and then there is...well, the list just goes on. Thanks for the pictures of people we think of as living that uncomplicated life but if we’d been there....

  5. Love these vintage photos of your family. Very All American and sporty.
