Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Christmas 1


This little card is slightly bigger than a business card. The photo shows two cute kids, presumably Marian and Joe, on a swing. Again, the photo was probably taken during a warmer part of the year. I remember my parents would sort through a few photos until they found one they liked of us. Once the Christmas card was of my sister and I playing with a wheelbarrow in the backyard in summer.

This card inscription indicates it was from Mr. & Mr.s J. A. Polhemus Jr., Marian & Joe. On the back it was signed “with love and best wishes, Anna.”

One thought on “Polhemus Family

    Cute card. The family is in the 1940 US census:


    Josiah A. and Anna M. (MacKinlay?) lived in Contra Costa, California with their children, Joe Jr. (or maybe even III), Marian, and Robert.
