My Grandpa Gave me Hundreds of Old Family Photos
“Photographs open doors into the past, but they also allow a look into the future.” -Sally Mann
Meet my Grandpa Reinhold, pictured here as a little boy in Chicago circa 1933.
A few years back he gave me hundreds upon hundreds of old family photos…many of him and many of family members I never knew.
It makes me wonder what else there was to my grandpa’s life? How close was he to his family? Who and what made him “Grandpa Rinie”? So many questions I still have for him but may never be answered.
Yet I can see childhood innocence and hope here in this photo of him. I will always cherish the family photos he handed down to me, what an honor! ~shared by @thomas_mil
