My paternal grandmother Julia Mary Walsh Slade was probably 13 years old in this picture which is glued fast to the photo album of her half-sister Helen Killeen Parker. The few pictures that have dates written on them are from 1918-1920.
What was the occasion? Too old for her first Holy Communion. Too young to be a bride. Was it Easter?
