Every Friday The Psychogenealogist shares a "Pic of the Week." The intent is to encourage thought and imagination about the spaces where psychology, genealogy, and history converge.
Based on the car and clothes this appears to be a 1920s era photograph. At first this looked like a group of similarly aged friends, but it could also be family. Maybe they are siblings with the older woman second in from the right as the mother?
I particularly like the framing of this shot as the photographer seemed to very purposely take the photo through the wire fencing. It almost looks like a musical staff with the individual people being the notes. I wonder what their song is.
I don’t know anything else about the photo but thought you would enjoy seeing it.
I would love to know their story! Wouldn’t you?
