Photograph Showcase: On the Swing

Estelle Duval on swing

possibly Estelle Maffit

This photo is among the many photos my grandmother has given me.  She told me that it is a picture of her mother Estelle and that it was taken in Montana.  After I uploaded it, I was waiting for the page to load with the image.  In the instant that the image popped up I was struck by the fact that this does not look like Estelle to me.  Suddenly I am questioning this sweet little photo that I have loved well.  Is it really my great grandmother?  Is it one of her sisters?  I think I need to do some comparing!

  2. If your grandmother told you it was her mother, it seems strange that that would be untrue. Post some other pictures that you know to be Estelle so we can judge too! People definitely can look different at different ages and in different lighting.
