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 father’s mother, the one who taught me to knit, stitched this saying I have on my wall.

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.
