Great Grandmother Brewer (a.k.a. GGB) - my great grandmother meant a lot to me - though I didn't have the privilege of seeking her advice in my teen years, she was good to sit next to and feel admired by. Sitting next to her was just supremely comfortable. You could just sit and be. She would look at you and seriously admire you, chuckle a bit and give you a hug.
Though not a good photo (taken around 1910, the left half is sort of "bleached" out while the right half is OK), this is a picture of her at the age of 17, with my very dashing great grandfather. This was their honeymoon - fresh off the train in AFRICA. They lived there a few years where she had several of her 5 children, a few "helpers" and a shotgun. My great grandfather would go on expeditions, sometimes for several days and she would hold down the fort.
These goblets were brought home from Africa from their life there and I treasure them.
(Note: I have a previous photo posted here of a child's dress, worn by her children.)
