I think this is the last photo I have of Frederick and Susan together before her death.
Frederick William Ellis and Susan Kaziah Davis are my 2nd great grandparents. Susan died in 1930, Frederick died in 1933.
Do you see the cute photo-bomber in the background? I wish I knew who that was!

That is a cute photo bomber. So this is Grandmas dads dad?
Yes – you got it!
Yes, my eyes were immediately drawn to the little person behind Frederick, standing on a brick wall? And is that snow on the bushes behind them? There are no leaves on the bushes and vertical bushes (trees?) further back, so appears to be winter? Yet your grandparents aren’t dressed for winter? Evidently they’re under an overhang with that elaborate post decoration? Telephone or electric wires in the background? Such a lovely collar on her dress, but what is the necklace? So many questions!
Oh yes, that’s a whole lot of snow. Apparently we Utah folks have never been ones for wearing enough winter gear if we don’t have to. My boys rarely wear proper coats, just hoodies. Everyone around here is like that. ? I am also curious about the necklace.
Susan’s lace collar is wonderful. We don’t see enough of those anymore.
Isn’t it pretty? Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
A photographically unique character of this photo is the child in the background is in focus while the two in front are not! ☺
Good eye! So many of our photos aren’t properly focused and we just accept it. Although, what else can we do? 😉
