Sepia Saturday I couldn't resist using it again.
The woman in this photo is my great-grandmother Hazel Madsen Piggott. She is kissing her husband, my great grandfather William Cannon Piggott.
It looks to me like he is just leaving for work and she is giving him a kiss for the road. And I am sure she wished him a good day.
The icing on the cake here is the word "caught" written on the bottom. I wish I knew who wrote it and if it was written at the time the photo was taken, or did someone add it years later?
Come to think of it, it looks like something one of her sisters would inscribe. I have had the privilege of reading some of the postcards she sent to grandma Hazel.
The little boy holding what looks to be a hat is my grandfather William Madsen Piggott. They called him "Matt". The older gentleman looking away is Charles Edwards Taylor. He is grandpa Will's uncle.
My uncle emailed this to me a while back so I have never seen or got to hold the original, but it's still very precious to me.
