My mother and brother.

This photo was taken in the late 1950s and is from a series my father made of my mother giving my two older brothers a bath and dressing them.

This shot is with my oldest brother, David.

I love this photo and series because it shows simple everyday life, as well as my mother’s love for her children.

My father was an amazing photographer and used his family, especially his beautiful wife, as his subjects.

I feel very lucky to have his photos and to be able to save and share them. ~shared by @devilinthewoods_

We found a picture of falmouth art gallery which we believe is a Victorian image of when the gallery started being used for arts and science. This also formed the basis for Falmouth Art School when the classes aired popularity and moved to Arwenack Avenue #throwbackthursdays #tbt #savefamilyphotos #falmouth #lovefalmouth #discoverf @falmouthuni Thanks, falmouthartgallery http://ift.tt/1lzDSVr @savefamilyphotos

This little band of giggle machines are family. (Laughing). I am not trying to make ‘light’ of these old pictures, just sometimes they tickle me. They had rough times. Hard lives. Possibly some days they had nothing to smile about. Photographing was rare then. It was in a setting. It was commissioned and paid for. Suppose, before a setting, someone spoke up ‘Hey you goof balls, straighten up. This is serious. ‘Ya want everyone thinking we are a bunch of bumpkins’? Thus, this is why our old family photos never look like a ‘still’ from a Three Stooges Episode. 
Seated is my GG Grandparents. Benjamin Franklin Kinion (1841-1924), and Mary (McDonald) Kinion (1841-1899). Standing is William and Naomi Kinion. William and Naomi (named after Mary’s sister). My GG Uncle and Aunt are the oldest of Ben and Mary. Littile side serving of fact. When Mary died in 1899, Ben married her sister Naomi. (raised eyebrows). Benjamin was a Civil War Veteran (49th Missouri Infantry), practiced law and was a horticulturist. He was born and died in Lincoln County, Missouri. Not much know about Mary, but her mother was a Presley. (can find no link to The King but I am sure we are related … I move my hips when I sing). #savefamilyphotos Thanks, myronropp http://ift.tt/1rd3R8V @savefamilyphotos

One more. 1943. Frank Edward Ropp (my father), home on leave in Oklahoma. He was a medical tech stationed in British Columbia. They received and treated the wounded from the Pacific Campaign. The little boy is his nephew - Joe. I always loved the way Joe held my Dad’s face. Like a caress. Studing it. Endearing it to himself.
