Durand Illinois about 1916. The only people I can identify are my maternal grandparents. These two photos are next to one another in my Grandmother’s Album.
My mother in the hat on the the left with her brothers John on right and Robert in the middle.

These winter photos look similar to posts I’ve seen the last few days. No hand pump for water these days. But the snow looks familiar.
But who is in the middle? A neighbor, relative? Their grandmother? Not their mother.
I wish I knew. Maybe my cousins will be able to identify.
On the left my Aunt Edna and on the right her sister Charlotte, my maternal grandmother. The woman between is unidentified.
Durand Illinois c.1917
From my grandmother’s album.
At first I thought they were my grandparents, Judd and Charlotte VanSickle.
I don’t even know who owned the camera.
In or near Durand, Illinois. Early 1900’s
The indoors photo was placed in the album before the outdoors photo.
Previously posted on the blog, but I think it’s the same group of women. From my grandmother’s album. “Doris February 1916” ?
My son Mark found my mother Marian and her brother John in the photos. My mom was born in 1912 so this photo must be about 1914.
My Maternal Grandfather was born on September 4,1887.
