Worldless Wednesday - Helen and Oliver Ross

Helen and Oliver Ross

This is a photo of my great grand aunt Helen Ross (later Helen Ross-Whitted) and great grand uncle Oliver Ross. It was captioned "Helen age 3+, Oliver 9 months" so it's from around 1906. They were living in Lake Creek township, Calhoun County, Iowa during this time frame. They are the siblings of my great grandmother, Clara (Ross) Fowlie.


  1. Those two little ones are adorable. They're not smiling, which is the traditional pose for that time period, but their expressions show interest and curiosity, which is more than we see in many old photographs. Precious!

  2. I liked this photo too. I'll try to find some other good ones for a future sepia Saturday. Thanks for pointing it out.
