Re: what it means

I would guess that the guy in the circle is in a military uniform, he died and the only thing that is left is the photo, the memories of him and the sadness.

Re: what it means

hi,
I am not sure if i can add anything meaningful..

as far as sadness hard to say.. people during that time, when taking picture very seldomg smiled and in fact.. the pose is generally very stoic. At least all the old pictures i have seen were people were stoic in the pictures..

and it could just be a nice momento picture... the mother and son or her favorite belovid grandson or even nephew... it could of been take at the time the guy entered the service... or like mike mentioned the guy died and then some thought be nice create that image ..

be interesting what the real story about that....

Re: what it means

hi,
i was curious.. and did a quick look at uniforms....

i assume glossop england .
i did just a quick check but i notice this one sussex regiment picture taken in france in 1915 ,, had almost the identical uniform.... that the man in the picture had.. later in the war the uniforms changes..

other pictures i look at, of that era was substantially different....

oh i can imagine.. the gossip.. smiling... us guys don't say gossip when we get together...lol .....

I know what you mean when the family get together... when we have our family reunions over here (in the us) the pictures and family trees and etc are broken out...lol ... and good long discussions take place... smiling..

Re: what it means

The reason I posted that was because the thing she is holding in her hands looks like a photograph and I am betting that it is the same as the guy in the circle.

I think that is a safe bet as I do not think that you can disprove me!
