  1. The children are charming.

  2. Even though one isn’t related to the people in the photos, the photos are much more interesting when there are some names attached.

  3. We have many families here named “Riendeau,” a French surname — I wonder if it’s pronounced the same? Love the violin boy!

  4. Someone wrote notes like my grandmother on the back of photos!

  5. Thanks for sharing these old family photos.

  6. Interesting photos. However the boy does not have a real violin, the shape is too crude and the bow too short, so it is a photographer’s studio prop. The pose is not typical of child violinists, but more like an imitation of fiddler from a country band. The message on the back must be one of the more complicated notes on family history.

    The baby looks to be sitting on someone who is hidden under the drape, but where could their head be?

  8. That middle photo of the children is wonderful – there expressions seem almost modern although quite clearly they were not.

    The children in the second photo are really cute. Looks like the older one is holding carefully to the baby, but someone else might be kneeling down behind the baby to keep a better hold?

  10. Amazing how similar round headed blond babies are. I have photos that resemble that baby and I’m sure are no way related. Perhaps other types of babies also resemble each other.
