I just wanted to share this picture from the past, from a peaceful, good life in Luxembourg in the early sixties.
These people are my grandmother, now 95 years old and my late great-grandmother who died a long time ago.
My mother, then around 18 took this picture with a very simple Agfa Synchro Box camera I still own today. It still works and is going strong!
This picture must have been taken in 1961, two years before my birth. It must have been in early autumn as the grapes were ripe (no imported fruit, those days!). A lovely sunny day in the backyard by the wall, warmed by the already low sun.
On the table I see a typewriter my mother used to do some secretarial work at home for my future dad’s firm. The typewriter is loaded with several sheets separated by carbon paper and came with a nice carrying case. There are the requisite paper supplies and on the notebooks sits another camera that my mother does not remember…. too bad.
Delightful, those grapes!
Thanks for reading!
