(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 239 - Emily and Dorothy Taylor in 1920

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

Here is a photograph from the Marion (Seaver) (Braithwaite) Hemphill family collection passed to me by Aunt Marion's daughter in 2000 after her passing. 

This photograph is of Emily White (Richmond) Taylor (1879-1966) and her daughter, Dorothy Richmond Taylor (1904-1992), It was probably taken in about 1920, perhaps on the street where they lived in San Diego.  They are sitting on the running board of the Model T Ford (I think) owned by George Taylor, Emily's husband and Dorothy's father.

Dorothy Richmond Taylor was my father's first cousin, since Emily White (Richmond) Taylor and my father's mother, Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver were sisters.

Wonderful photograph, Randy - love the hat as well!! I always loved standing on the running boards of old cars - amazing the dumb things we did as kids. How great to have such lovely photographs of your extended family.

Love the photo Randy! I have a similar one with my great-grandfather standing next to his model T and my grandmother who was a little girl at the time in it. I posted it on my blog before ( and described the car crash his wife had when she first learned how to drive. It's very likely the first car anyone in my family owned. I love having a photo of that car!
