Shadow Shot Sunday - Shadowy History


My Aunt Terry has located even more old pics for me to scan, categorize and archive - a real treasure trove of family history going back as far as 1913. For today's Shadow Shot Sunday 2, a series of pictures jumped out at me and given their shadowy content, nice to post today. It is my Aunt Terry as a little girl and other neighboring children in August 1945 on VJ Day (14 August, 1945), holding the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in front of their home at 1645 Oregon Avenue in the steel city of Steubenville, Ohio. Grandpa took lots of pictures, and these celebrate an important day in not just family, but national and world history too. With shadows too...
