These are a few pictures from my grandmother's mother's family. Folks who were born prior to 1885. My grandma was usually pretty good about labeling photos. However, these all have the same name written on the back, Louise Honert. Honert was my great-grandmother's maiden name.

I've always been intrigued with old etchings and black & white art. These remind me of the art I find in the collection of old National Geographic magazines, also from my grandmother's collection. I'm amazed at the detail and creative design going on in these. The brown paper bag I found these in was labeled with my grandma's handwriting Pictures of the 1880's. Notice the great border treatments and font styles.
