This is the 6th post of photographs from the family albums of Matt Irwin.
For the last few weeks I’ve looked pretty intensely at these family photo albums that Matt Irwin kindly allowed me to copy in 2010.
Most of the people in the photographs are unidentified family members and friends. The only ones I can recognize most of the time are Matt’s great grandparents, Talitha and Albert H. Slavik and their daughter, Matt’s grandmother, Marjorie.
I think that most of the photographs date from the first four decades of the twentieth century. All of these folks are gone now and it’s humbling to consider that. Albert, born 1891, died 1959. Talitha, born 1895, died 1955. Marjorie, born 1918, died 1997.
There are a few hundred photos in this collection. Not really very many when you consider that they represent most of Albert and Talitha’s lives and about half of Marjorie’s.
The following are all photos of Marjorie’s early years. I hope you enjoy them.
