This Thompson family portrait was taken in Australia around 1913, not long after arriving from England. On the left is Amelia Jane Thompson, with daughter Adeline in her arms. Back right is Albert Thompson and the happy looking girl front right is Amelia (Millie) Thompson, my Grandmother, aged about 4. It is one of the earliest photos I have of my Grandmother.

    Very cool! I love old pictures, especially ones of daily life. We have this notion that we’re unique in history, and pictures always show how people never change.
