Sepia Saturday: My Baldings at the beach...

Thanks to the fastidious nature of my grandaunt, Ruth Balding, I have some photos with identification, and ~gasp~ even dates.

This is a Sepia Saturday post.

Head over there for more wonderful old photos and postcards.
ETA: I've received several comments from people about the first photo of my grand aunt, Ruth Balding.

I've written a follow-up about that photo alone, here.

It's me, Karen S. I like your photos at the lake. The dock photo with the extremely large gate at the end of the dock is so funny, to me, every time I see one I know why they put them there, but gee whiz a person could tumble over along the side at anytime too!
