I scanned an album of 8 X 10 photos today, and found another good hair picture of my Grandma Boots. This is from 1945:

She has always been into beauty and looking good. She must have spent hours on that hair. Even now, in the dementia home at 88 years old, she always dresses nice, puts on makeup, and wears her pearls.

When I last visited her in the dementia home, we went through these old photos of her and it made her really happy. She was always really into looks (her own and everyone else's) and seeing how good she used to look made her very content.

Aww, I'm glad you cheered her up. Dementia must be so hard and heartbreaking.

She is gorgeous! I wish my hair was that awesome!! I love her eyebrows too! I always try to pull off the thin 40's look!

She had great hair. Full and curly. For being 88, it still looks pretty good, actually.

Next time I see her I'll tell her how beautiful my friends think she is. :)

My grandmother just turned 89 and also has dementia. I have a gorgeous photo of her when she was 20 with gorgeous hair. I should scan that :)

You should!

Omg, she's so friggin beautiful! I love her smile!

She still has a great smile, even at 88.

Aw, I want to hug her! I read you said she's in a home for people with dementia. Cherish the time you have with her. It's such a gift! I have some photos of my grandmother with 30's hair somewhere. I should try to find them and post!

You should post them! My family (both sides) has thousands of photographs that are now all at our house (as people died or in Grandma's case, went into the home, we inherited the pictures) going all the way back to 1846, and so far I have scanned, cropped, labeled, organized, filed and uploaded 2,944 photos so far. I've been doing it since August. I still have about 1000 photos left (there are 18 albums and two boxes of loose photos left) to do, so hopefully I'll finish by February. I made a small filing cabinet and right now the photos are organized by name, and eventually I want to organize them all by decade within that person's name. And then I'm going to do the genealogy.

My family also has photos going back to the mid-1800s and I've just started scanning them. I don't have nearly as many and it's still daunting. The filing cabinet idea is excellent!

The filing cabinet has been great. Whenever I finish scanning my photos for the day, I just file them away and it takes two seconds.
