old photos – lola nene

with 3 comments

i was going through my hard drive from my old iBook and saw these. i posted them on flickr years ago. these are photos of my grandmother, engracia laconico.

from the early 1900s

the one above is my favorite. it’s a photo of my grandma when she was 4 or 5, with her sister, nena. this was probably taken around 1915(lola nene is the chubby girl with short hair and a hairband). my lola nene, as we fondly called her, wasn’t really fond of me because i was a very naughty little girl. heehee. i just find it ironic and FUNNY that we look a LOT like each other. LOL.

my lola nene grew up to be miss philippines in 1933.

and she married my grandfather, gregorio zara, a future national scientist.

we still have their love letters from across the seas since lolo went to school in ann arbor, boston and paris. they’re really funny and very sweet :)
