I've been going through a lot of old photographs that I have and I thought this one was a sweet remembrance of summer days gone by. These girls are certainly enjoying their watermelon, as are all those chickens gathered around their feet! I wish I knew who these girls were, but I haven't a clue.
My great-uncle was a photographer in these mountains back in the early 1900s and spent his day traveling from homestead to homestead making pictures of the mountain families. I often wonder how many of the families actually bought pictures, as we have so many leftover from his picture taking days.
The old photo is faded and someone glued it on its backing crooked, so it was a little hard to scan in. I hope you enjoy looking at it.
Have a great day.
