Betty and Her Grandparents in About 1920 -- Post 653 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

  I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is one of my favorite photographs:

This photograph was taken in late 1919 or early 1920 at 2105 30th Street in San Diego (the house is in the background).  My mother, Betty Virginia Carringer is the child in the picture, being adored by her paternal grandparents, Henry Austin and Della (Smith) Carringer.  Betty was their only grandchild since she was an only child and her father Lyle was Austin and Della's only child who lived past infancy.  Austin is about age 67 in this photo and Della is about age 58.  They built this house in about 1895 and lived in it until their deaths in 1946 and 1944, respectively.  

This photo (originally black and white) has been enhanced and colorized using the MyHeritage photo tools.
