My Past - Gothic Arch Challenge

This is my submission for this week's Gothic Arch Challenge. These are my Maternal Great Great Grandparents Sven and Beatte Lundberg. They immigrated from Sweden in the 1860s...The children clockwise from bottom: Great Aunt Grace, Great Uncle Clarence and Great Uncle Jim. The picture was taken approximately 1919.

Thanks for a great challenge Louise! All the wonderful submissions can be found at:
