The theme for Week 8 (Feb. 18-24) is: Family Photo.
For this week's theme, Family Photo, I have chosen to share a photograph of my grandmother's family, taken at the time of my grandmother's wedding in 1936. My grandmother was the daughter of James William Smith and his second wife Agnes Fullerton. This photograph shows J.W. Smith, his wife Agnes, and 11 of J.W.'s 13 living children in 1936.

J.W. Smith and his first wife Hanora Hanley married in 1897 and had four sons (James, Joseph, Cyril and Ivo) and one daughter (Audrey). Joseph died in 1902 when almost 6 months old. Hanora died in December 1908 at Elmore, Victoria, Australia. J.W. Smith and his second wife Agnes Fullerton were married in 1910 and had four sons (William, John, Robert, Francis) and five daughters (Dorothea, Ellen, Evelyn, Joyce and Kathleen). Using Adobe Photoshop Elements, I digitally added photographs of the two living children who were missing from the original 1936 photograph: James (Jim) and Cyril (Syd).
