Me (second to left) with my brothers circa 1955. Can anyone identify that vehicle?

It is a stagecoach and I'd say you were at Wild West city or one those parks that stage old west gunfights for kids.

I don't know what it was doing there but it is parked next to a friend of the family's house (their kid is on the right). Yes, there was a rich area not too far from where I grew up.

My great grandmother and her three sisters, probably taken in the 1910s. Great Grandma is second from the left.

Just kidding....
I was a stuffed animal aficionado myself. Still am. I'm drooling over the teddy bear in the pic.
They gave me dolls; I really wanted to hold the cat.

That was an old rental house near the end of a dirt road in the woods in upstate NY. Went hunting/gathering in the surrounding woods (with the owners/neighbors permission); we also raised chickens. I also was lent out to help harvest fruits/vegetables.

Origin of pictures

Mother died in '03, sister inherited a trunk full of papers and pictures, gave them to her daughter (my niece) who has been going through and posting them. She also is second hand possessor of a box of papers and pictures from when Mother's sister died a few years earlier.

Someday all memories of my existence will be a box (or thumb drive) sent to someone who barely remembers me.

When I was a kid, perhaps 10 or 11, my dad went through an old album of photos (some tin types) and told me about his family. That was the only time I ever saw that album until after my mother's death (over 40 years later). I now have that album and I nearly cry every time I look at it and realize what I have lost. I don't know any of those people even though they are my ancestors. I'm hoping to take it to a "cousins reunion" someday - before it is too late - and see if any of them might know some of those folks. Word to the wise - never pass up a chance to learn something when the opportunity comes around.

From what I can gather, Mother went through the photos at some point in her later years and put notations on the back.
