The most priceless picture I’ve ever held in my hands, found after a fire destroyed our home.
This is one of the coolest and most priceless pictures I’ve ever held in my hands.
This is the farm house in Missouri where I grew up. The house was built in 1895 and members of our family have lived in it ever since. The woman in the photo was one of my ancestors, named Emma, and the man next to her is also a relative, named “The Bull.” In fact, our family lived in it until a tragic fire a few weeks ago. The fire started in the back of the house and went straight up to the second floor, where most of our family antiques were.
We were very fortunate and were able to recover quite a lot, including hundreds of historic family photos we found under the rubble of our home.
This photo was dated pre-1930, since the second half of our house didn’t even exist until then.
I am so glad these photos made it through the fire. ~ shared by @kelseyjo_001
