OLD PHOTOS OF IRENE & BOB & OTHERS

Collection from Donna & Jim Boerma, digital scans by Roger, April 2017

Here are some great old photos sent to me by my sister Donna and bro-in-law Jim Boerma. A few of them show approximate dates on the back - which I have added to the filename. Where uncertain, I guessed and titled the photo with "maybe" or "about." I'd love to hear your better guess on dates - write me at rogrmail at gmail dot com. The images are in jpg format - click the image to see full size, then download if you want. (Be patient - the full size pics are 1.2-2.3 MB.)

Dorothy Irene Fisher Straw
Roger's mom.

I'm guessing that she looks about 14, so this would be taken sometime around 1934. Please contact me if you have a better guess.
