(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 116: Betty and the Flivver

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

I managed to scan about 100 family photographs in the Scanfest in January, and have converted the scanned TIF files to smaller JPGs, cropped and rotated as best I can. Many of these were "new" to my digital photograph collection.

Here is a photograph from the Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

I love these pictures of my mother as a baby, and the pictures of the family car. This is a two-fer - both in one picture!

The little girl is my mother, Betty Carringer, and probably was taken by my grandfather, Lyle Carringer, in 1920 when she was about one year old. The automobile is probably the one I posted in Lyle was Driving. I don't recognize the house in the background - it may have been one belonging to the extended family or family friends, or it may be a neighborhood house on 30th Street in San Diego.
