Mystery Monday: I know who...wish I knew where!

Helen Josephine Samsel
This is a great picture of my Granny Smyczynski, taken well before she was my granny and even before she was a Smyczynski.  Her name is written on the back, looks like her writing to me.  "Helen Samsel".  This dates it before 1932, which is when she married my grandfather.  I with I knew where it was taken, such a cool spot!  I would assume it was taken in Philadelphia, somewhere...but of that I can't be sure.


  1. That is a fantastic picture! Pretty darn clear too. Maybe a historic society in Philly might recognize the planters/urns.

  2. I have chosen your blog for the “One Lovely Blog” award. Please visit my blog to pick it up and pass it on.

    You have a great blog, look forward to reading more of your posts.
