This is day 25 of the A to Z April Challenge.
is for Youngins. Little folks make delightful subjects for photos. Here is a random sampling of photos that have been passed down in my family.
I love everything about this photo of my maternal grandfather's sisters Violetta and Velma taken probably about 1911. Violetta's stance and the position of her arm remained the same as an elderly woman.
This is a picture of my mother Mary Eleanor Davis (Slade) and her brother Orvin Davis Jr. taken probably late 1929.
Here is one dollbaby. If you click on the image to enlarge it, you might see she's wearing two rings and a ribbon bracelet. This is Alda Clift, daughter of Sallie Jollett and George Clift. Sallie and George lost two children in a fire, so I bet this cutie patooty was doted on. Alda was born in 1905, so I date this picture about 1906.
This is one of Alda's brothers Raymond. I wonder what he was thinking about. He was born in 1900, so probably this portrait was made at the same time as Alda's.
Maxine and Pauline Strole were children of Granddaddy's cousin Pearl Sullivan and her husband Clyde Strole. Maxine was quite the fashionista with that fur collar and muff.
Could there be a better Christmas for my cousins Bobbie and Glenn Davis? I can remember being totally jealous that Bobbie got a cowgirl outfit (with a gun, no less!). Cowgirl outfit, doll, doll house, and ironing board. Looks like a great Christmas to me!
And who is that long-legged cute girl taking care of her baby sister in 1959? Velveteen pedal-pushers and a pink top. Sister in cloth diapers. Priceless!
Yippee! There will be no Yawning over the Yarns Yielded by Yuppies, Youngsters, Yokels, and Yodelers over Yonder at the A to Z April Challenge.
