AN OLD PHOTO


This is Bill's Uncle Walter, Aunty Hedi and little cousin Walter outside their butcher shop in Switzerland around 1931.

  5. Always nice to see old photos. How people have changed in clothing, specially the child.

  6. Seeing photos from this time period, I always think about how they had no idea what was coming in a few years.

  7. Clearly they took great pride in their shop ownership, and I love how little Walter is also wearing his apron.

  8. There are some interesting shapes in those aprons, but boy, am I glad I don't have to walk on those cobblestones.

  9. I love the name Walter and was very keen on it for one of our children. But I'm afraid Walter would get reduced to Wally in Australia and you can't be a Wally...that's just too silly.

  12. I recognise Aunty Hetti - I can see the family resemblance. But I don't recognise Dad in the small boy? Lovely photo isn't it!

  14. I am with Margaret, the cobblestones look like they are being laid and not yet finished. A very interesting view.

  15. Nice pictures - the shock is that the house where I was born looked like that in 1963!

  16. Happy New Year! I like the old photo ... And as I have told you too often, I really wish I could get my act together and do some memory stuff myself.

  18. Fascinating photo - those 'cobblestones' are intriguing.

  19. Aunty Hedi's one-shoulder apron is an interesting fashion statement. As for those cobblestones, I've walked on cobblestones before & they actually pain your feet. No thanks!
