My Family – Across Generations – Tale Weaver #23 and Six Sentence Stories “trunk”


I found this photograph in my old wooden trunk – I’m Ethel and that’s me with black hair, on my right is baby Laura and on my left is the blond Helen.

It was Granny’s birthday and she wanted our photograph taken.

We all had to put our best clothes, walked to the studio and stayed still for the photograph which took forever.

Granny passed away two years after that, my father went to war and was killed in action.

My mother took care of us – it was a tough time.

Fifty years later, I’m now married to George with three children, Helen works as a nurse and Laura works in a publishing house – both still single.

    I like the intergenerational way you tell the story. In only 6 sentences you weave quite a story. Thanks for participating!

    I often look at old photos and think about what happened in the lives of the sitters. Its often difficult in photos this old because everyone looks so stoic and you know people were just doing what was expected of the time… its sometimes difficult to imagine them as more animated!
