What is the oldest family photo you have ever found?
I found this one in a box of someone who according to the back died in 1887

Does anyone know who this was taken?

I’ve got tattoos on my chest of old black and white portraits of my mum and dad from the 50’s, before they were married. I think we have some family photos dating back to the 30’s.

Any photo? Or a verified family photo?

Very nice, it is wonderful that through scanning everyone in your family can see photos like that.

Now, that's funny!

Why is that funny?
No offense, but it is not something we see very often here in the States.

Well, to be honest I did find it offensive.

My reasoning behind it was that they will always be as close to my heart as long as I'm alive. My father died of cancer a good few years ago and I thought it was a fitting and lasting tribute to his memory for me. My mother is still alive but not in great health (she's nearly 88). Her reaction when I showed her them was more than worth the 14+ hours of pain I suffered under the needle getting them and believe me it was bloody painful.

Well, I'll tell you what. I won't post on anything you post & you should do the same.

I have some old ferrotypes from the mid 1800's of my great x3 or x4 grandparents.
