Other children

Of course that the big majority of the antique photos I have depict middle class people, who had the financial means to get photographed. These class photos are different. These kids, squinting at the camera, are from families of workers or peasants. IMG_0091 IMG_0102 IMG_0103 The last photo has on the back the name of one of the boys who was in the second grade, the place were it was taken and the fact that the boy, Bunica Mihai, was born on the 15th of February 1922 (so this photo was taken probably in 1929 or 1930). I have some other photos from the same boy. On the back of this one it is written: “When I was 16 and I started as an apprentice at the factory.” IMG_0104 IMG_0108 On the back of this one, he had written: “Souvenir from the time when I was an apprentice at the plant and we would work all together to revision the machines.” IMG_0105 IMG_0109 Although I have older photos than these ones from 1938, more beautiful ones and better preserved, still I consider these among the most precious.
