Sepia Saturday 502

Perfect. Just up my alley!  I have so many group photos I hardly know where to start. After 55 years of teaching, a teacher mother and numerous teaching uncles, aunts, cousins, bothers-in-law etc, my access to group photos is unlimited.

However I have decided to stick with family photos as these are more interesting to me.

My husband's great grandfather Captain Alexander Frederick Boord was a seaman and a pilot  He and his wife had a large family of 13 children  - mainly daughters - and he was known locally as 'the pilot with many daughters".

 Below is a family photo the Boord children - several of them died at an early age and do not appear here.

And Captain Boord and his brood.

And this is of a Boord wedding - circa 1914. Captain Boord is third from the left in the back row. The bride - his daughter Nellie Rae is third from right in the front row.

To jump forward to around 1948. Here we have some of the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of Captain Boord. The lady in the centre front is his daughter Lydia Rosa Needle, with two of her daughter to the left of her and her grandchildren. Her son Ronald had six sons of whom my husband Don was the second.

 Here are 5 of the 6 Needle boys as youngsters

And below the 6 Needle boys as adult. My husband is the beardless one.
