George Ernest Falkner, Jr.

George Ernest Falkner, Jr. in front of Olympia Arena in Detroit, Michigan, USA. For some reason, it makes me think of bootlegging. I have a letter from his sister admonishing him to “never do that again,” so I wonder what he got up to in the wild days of prohibition. #falknerjarrell #ancestors #familyhistory #genealogy #genealogyphoto...

Winter Scene (1920s)

Found in a Schermack/Blumenstiel Family photo album. I love this Winter scene with the old cars.

Air Show (1920s)

Air Show (1920s). Found in a Schermack/Blumenstiel Family photo album. It reminds me that my grandmother, Dorothy Blumenstiel Jarrell, went up in an open-cockpit plane in 1928. She only told her mother about it afterwards. I'm not sure of the location of this photo, but it could be Freeport, Illinois or Detroit, Michigan. #falknerjarrell #familyhistory...
