I added more photos of my grandmother up in my flickr Shanghai 1930 set. Thank you to all who have commented on the first post I did back in March on her. She was an amazing stylish and talented woman.
Here's my grandmother in her wedding dress which she designed. I am in awe of her veil and the train. It must have been amazing. Unfortunately, this is the only photo we have of the wedding. There's none of my grandpa whatsoever. I think her family in Shanghai has the rest and I hope one day I can go back and see the rest of these memories.
This is my grandmother and my dad who must have been about five. As a kid looking at this photo, I used to make fun of my dad that he was wearing a dress. He informs me it's shorts but who knows. Apparently, my grandmother would make a lot of more dress up outfits for my dad. But my dad being a boy would always go out and come home with the outfits completely muddy and dirty. He said he got in trouble a lot for that.
This is one of my favorite pictures of my dad as a kid. It reminds me of myself. He's totally busy doing his thing climbing and seems a bit annoyed his mom wants to take yet another picture. Note the familly dog in the corner who's around. This dog followed my dad around everywhere. So cute.
