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:

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

  3. I wonder if she or her mother had to use a button hook to button up her shoes?

  4. So fortunate that everyone is identified. I have an album from the 1920s filled with unidentified people. Sigh.
