What it is:

Photo measuring 4 x 5.75 inches.  Little spots of glue and paper on the back indicate it was once mounted to something.

What I know about it:

Nothing!  Undated and unidentified.


At a glance, this would seem to be an older woman with her four adult children, but without identification it’s hard to be sure.  Perhaps this group includes in-laws or fiances?  Perhaps she has (or had) other children who aren’t present?  Perhaps these people are no relation at all?  I have another picture or two of the older woman alone, and one with her on a couch reading with a younger woman (I can’t tell if it’s one of the woman here).  But this is my favorite.  I like all the people and how they are relating to each other in their poses.  I like the clarity of detail of their clothing and their surroundings (I believe this is a house, rather than a studio).  And I like the fact that they all appear content.

  1. I love the expressions on their faces, especially the women. The one on the upper left looks like she is going to bust into a laugh. It made me laugh with her.
