This photograph was found in a box of photos from Europe. The only inscription on its reverse is "1934 Oma", which is German for grandma.

I don't know if it's visible in the photo's scale, but the women are all knitting, and the table reflects some of their handiwork.

It is a fine memento of the period, and in the character of the times, the subjects all have their "serious faces" on.

    Oma is also Dutch for grandma.

    Thanks Bazelmania, the similarities between the many Nordic-Germanic languages is very close! And this includes English, too. Being aware of the cultures and languages of the world is beneficial, and quite interesting....
