Scenery: Sunset on a Beach (Texas - 1940's)

This photo was found in the collection of a great-aunt. It is a photograph taken by her son of her two grandsons, who died in a polio epidemic in 1948. This is probably on a Texas beach, although I am not sure of the location. I never knew these boys but remember being told about their tragic deaths.

What beautiful photos & how sad that these boys died that way. We have to remember & be grateful for all the serums & preventative shots we have now.

Those should be framed & hung on a wall-they are hauntingly beautiful!

Very poignant. Makes me wish I had some of my mom's old photos and the equipment to digitize them.

What an awesome photo! It is even more poignant knowing the tragic story behind it. I agree with others - I would frame these and keep them always with the story enclosed in the frame for future generations.
