Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.
This photo was in a box of pictures that had belonged to my great grandmother Mary Theresa Sheehan Killeen Walsh. Unlike most of the photos that I inherited from my dad’s family, this one bears a date on the back signaling that it was likely sent to Mary Theresa, maybe from one of her sisters in New York or some other relative. (The row houses in the background actually look more Southern than New Yorkish.)
The occasion: a First Holy Communion, May 15, 1938.
