Photos 1901 - 1905 of 5729

Last Tuesday Pietje showed us the picture http://www.fotothing.com/Pietje/photo/f3f2c000552fab1124affc8513cc6b13/ in which you see a pocket watch.
It reminded me that I had a similar watch. I got it from the grandfather of my wife. It is about 100 years old and still in a good condition (1 min. late in 24 hours).
My grandfather-in-law got it in 1910 when he left his first employer after 25 years.
So this is my (early) entry for Memory Tuesday 25 Dec. 2007.

Thanks for the comment Jake.
Yes, such items are nice to pass to grandchildren. At the time, I was very surprised that I got the watch although I was not a "true" grandson.
