Isn’t my grandmother darling? I love her little shoes and socks. And that dress! I think it is very sweet. The collar and buttons are lovely. But her eyes. I would know those eyes anywhere. Even in black and white. I love her, I am blessed that she is still living.

A great photograph.
Thank you Charles!
Isn’t it always amazing to see your grandparents or parents as children? What a great photo.
Yes! I love to look at childhood photos of someone I didn’t know until they were older. It fascinates me.
Aw, what an adorable girl and outfit.
Thank you Luanne!
She looks like she could be dancing! Is there a story behind the photo? Or is it a studio portrait?
She does, doesn’t she? I don’t know the story behind the photo. My great grandparents opened their own photography studio a few years later so this may have been a practice shot while my great grandmother was working through her photography correspondence course.
If you’ve put this photo into your Mom’s profile at Ancestry, you can also add this background info. This becomes the basis of a “story” that really brings the profile to life.
I have put it in my ancestry tree. I’m really trying to be thorough. Hopefully I don’t leave anything out. 🙂
