Ellis Album

Ellis Album, Photo 2 – A Trio of Little Darlings


ELLIS, Beth Margaret Dale - smaller
Beth, Margaret – my grandmother, & Dale Ellis, likely 1929

Oh my goodness!  Isn’t my Grandma absolutely adorable?!  She is the wee one in the middle.  Really, they are all adorable.  I love all of the details in this beautiful portrait, one of my favorites has to be Grandma’s shoes.  I’ve never seen shoes quite like them before – so many cute little straps.

Beth was born in 1919, Dale in 1922, and Grandma in 1927.  All three have passed.  Grandma went first in 2004, then Beth in 2011, then Dale in 2014.  I had never seen this photo before.  What a treasure!



Here are the first two pages of the album to give context for this photo:

    1. Thank you, Amy! Yes, it really is. I’ve seen very few photos of her as a child (um, in comparison to my other Grandma which I am right now realizing is the worst yardstick ever since my other Grandma’s parents were photographers…), so finding this album has been a special treat.

  1. You like all those straps on her shoes. Whoever had the job of buckling them probably did not.

        1. Well, maybe, you will be able to sort some of it out with time. I have several unidentified photos that I have been able to identify lately because of other items I’ve come across. What if you have some precious ancestor photos mixed in there?! Good luck! ❤️
