52 Ancestors, Week 2: Favorite Photo

I actually had a hard time with this prompt! I have many favorite photos and it is hard to find just one to share.

So I went with a slightly unexpected photo. The two women in the picture below are not related to me, but I they were friends of my great-grandparents, Glenn and Erma (Almy) Witherell. They were all a part of the Saginaw Motorcycle Club in the 1930s – including my great-grandmother by the way! She definitely seemed to be a woman who would do things in her own way, as she wanted, and these two women likely shared those characteristics.

It seems my great-grandparents definitely had a love for motorcycles (and their cars) by the number of pictures I have. That love has been passed down, as well. Well, at least to my dad (who had one when he was younger) and to his cousin (who still rides with his daughter often). I have yet to ride one, sadly, but I do hope to one day.

Without further ado, here is Carrie and Edna, in 1933, part of the Saginaw Motorcycle Club!

    Could be dangerous riding around in the snow on a motorbike. I’ve never ridden on one and doubt I will at this stage of life.

    The prompt this week was difficult as so many genealogists have lots of photos to choose from.

      True! I look forward to reading everyone’s stories on why they chose the picture they did. 🙂
