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!
