Belle’s Box – 151

This entry is part 153 of 342 in the series Belle's Box

Read about this series of posts, regarding items in a box originally owned by Belle (Lamunion) Fellows Tinker here. The cast of characters is located here.  And, there is an accounting of people about whom I have little or no information here.

This is the final post in my first book of items from Belle’s Box.  Book two seems to have at least as many cards at Book one  had, but many are folded type cards, which have an inside and and outside to read.   Also, there are many in the second that are undated Christmas cards, with few or no notes or information. Although I’m not sure how valuable the information on the cards is, I will continue to post them.  In the absence of anything else, the cards provide ample evidence of the family and social relationships of Papa’s g-grandmother, Belle Lamunion.

Book Three has fewer items, and more photos.

So, the [TA-DA!], finally, the last item in Belle’s box, Book one.

This photo postcard of Belle and Charlie must have been made from a smaller photo.

I did a little work on it, and you can see the results here:

I couldn’t guess the date of this photo, but Charlie has quite dark hair, and so does Belle. I have seen no other photos of Charlie with a suit on. Perhaps this is when they married, 15 July 1914. At the time of their marriage, Charlie was 36, and Belle 50.

    Hey there Granny Pam! I just wanted to let you know that I started a series called Margaret’s Envelope. I’ve recently made a connection with a second cousin in England that didn’t know my Great Grandmother went to the US and so I’ve begun posting a series of these items to share with her (and anyone else who happens by). Since I wasn’t sure if you’re still following my blog (google is wonderful these days) I wanted you to know that I’ve posted today giving you credit for the idea of posting these items as we talked about a few moons ago…
    Thanks for the idea & have a great day!
