(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 146: Gram, Mom and Nana

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.

Here is a photograph from the Seaver//Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:
I love three and four generation photographs.  The persons in this picture are, from the left, Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer (1899-1977), Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002) and Georgianna (Kemp) Auble (1868-1952).  They are, of course, my maternal grandmother, my mother and my great-grandmother.  This picture was taken in November 1929 (according to the caption on the back of the photo), and was probably taken beside the Lyle and Emily Carringer home at 2130 Fern Street in San Diego. 
My brothers and I called these three "Gram," "Mom" and "Nana." 
I don't have many pictures of my mother smiling, and this is a good one!  She looks tall for age 10, and I can see my oldest daughter in her face.  Besides that, these females are in my direct matrilineal line and share my mitochondrial DNA!
