One From the Vaults

The image below comes to us from my sister E, who recently scanned a great many old photos borrowed from my Dad. I will resist (for now) the temptation to post a ton of them, but I thought this one was eminently worth sharing. It’s my mother at age 7 and a half on the occasion of her First Holy Communion. Even though some types of color film were on the market at the time this photo was taken (1940), it was not yet widely used in the consumer market, and it was still common practice to take studio shots such as this in black and white and hand-tint the print.

And thank you E for making this post possible!

Mamma Mia!

I had a lot more fun than I thought while taking on this labor of love! I took all pics out of their frames before scanning so I would get the best copy possible. Now I have to get with Dad and find out who some of the people are in the wedding photos! All you FB users can tag the ones you know, cuz most of mine would be guesses! -Middle Sis
