I just found this treasure last week. If it wasn't for her name written on it and the skirt, I would have thought it was my own father. In fact it is his mother, my grandmother Arietta around age 13, I am guessing, so that would make this 1919! My father looks identical to her in this photo. Almost every single photo I have of her, she is with some animal. I am not sure where this was taken, but she grew up quite poor, as her father was a coal miner and her mother, a midwife, but she always looked happy. .
