The Family Photo Album: The Smiths, 50 Years Later

George Henry and Mary Lucinda (Rauch) Smith, my great-great-grandparents and the parents of Stanley Robert Smith, in the yard at their daughter Clara Arras’s house.  This photo was likely taken on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary, the celebration of which occurred 69 years ago today:

  1. Very cool photo. My eyes went to the man first and then to the woman and it feels like they are from different eras based on their clothing. I still can’t reconcile it completely. I guess he was ahead of his time. 😉
