Found Film: The Alberts Go Fishing

Raymond Albert's Photos - Roll 7

It’s time to share another batch of Raymond Albert’s photos. In this batch, Raymond (shown above) goes on a fishing trip with some friends and family. I’m not sure where this lake is – probably in Maine, but there are so many…

This batch of photos also contains some of the best pictures in the entire collection (of 20 rolls), in my opinion. Here are the first two:Raymond Albert's Photos - Roll 7

I think this second photo is just great. I don’t know why. I love how the (early morning?) light comes across from the right side and highlights the girls’ faces.

The second roll I’m sharing today is just an assortment of photos. This is Grandpa, who’s into woodworking, and appears to have had a pretty impressive woodworking shop:

Despite having a collection of about 600 photos that appear to span 7 or 8 years, there are few hints to tell how the people in the photos are related to each other. The man above is likely either Raymond’s father, or father-in-law. Interesting body language though. Were they having a heated debate on Truman’s handling of the Korean War? Or did they just not get along? And I wish I knew the background on that tie!

Here’s a picture of the girls – Louise (left) and her (cousin?) They spend quite a bit of time together during their childhood.

And I’ll end with this shot of “fun on the farm” – the final of the three “favorites” I mentioned earlier.
