I’m currently on holiday for a couple of weeks in Unst, Shetland, staying with my parents in my childhood home. My mum is also interested in family history and has a number of photos on the wall of old relatives, which are the subject of this post.
The photos are hung on the wall in the corridor that leads through the centre of the house. On the right hand side of the corridor are photos from my mum’s side of the family, and on the left hand side of the corridor are photos from my dad’s side of the family. The arrangement, especially of the ones from my mum’s side of the family where there are slightly more photos, is done in such a way to resemble a family tree layout. Hopefully the diagram below will make it clearer than any description could.
I think this is a really neat idea, and wondered whether anyone else had arrangements like these?
