Family photos

I'm home from a quick visit with grandma last night.  We spent some time poring through old family photos and I brought a few home. Here's one I especially wanted to show you all.

My grandfather, Joseph S. Czmiel, in WWII. He was in the US Air Corps and served in  the 466th Bombardment group in Europe. Wasn't he a dapper looking man?!

  1. What a great photo. My father was in the infantry (Patton's Army). I also brought home some wonderful vintage shots after my last trip. So glad you're collecting these.

    1. I have a big folder full of family photos to sort through. I love seeing all the old fashions, hair styles, furniture, etc. Just wait until I share a couple of my grandparents' wedding photos from 1948...my grandmother's dress was stunning and they made such a beautiful couple. :)

  4. He looks a very fine young man in that photo. We get many US visitors here because many of the squadrons flew in WWII from bases in Norfolk and they visit the old airfields although they are now mostly reclaimed for farmland. There is a area in my local church dedicated to the US bomber squadrons that flew from here and also in the Library in Norwich there is US World War II room.

  5. Excellent! I love old photos, and there's something especially cool about scanning them and making them available online.

    1. I have some very cool old photos to share here on the blog over the weekend. Sunday (Father's Day) would have been my grandparents' wedding anniversary, and some of their 40's era wedding photos are just wonderful. I think the blog will enjoy them. :)
