(Not-So-) Wordless Wednesday: Ewald Pape and Family, Christmastime 1946

Recently I was contacted by a third cousin once removed named Rachel who is the great-granddaughter of Margaret "Grete" Pape Travaglini (1901-1988).  Grete is the first cousin of my grandfather Paul Robert Pape (1896-1970) and his siblings, and the youngest daughter of Lorenz Pape (1862-1932), my great-great uncle.  More about Margaret and her family in a future post.

Rachel sent me a number of pictures of Margaret and her family, including pictures of her with her full brother Lorenz Jr. (the only one of Lorenz Sr.'s children to stay in Germany), as well as from visits Margaret made with her half-brother, the Portland architect Ewald Theodore Pape (1894-1976), or that Ewald had sent to her.

Below is one of those pictures, from Christmas time in 1946, of Ewald (on the right) with his wife Alma D. Albert Pape (1898-1983) and son Albert "Bert" Theodore Pape (1928-2003).  Note the background - more about this in my next post!
