Pretty risque for 1953! I'm glad the photographer was courageous enough to document this beautiful family for future generations.

I wonder what happened to the tiny baby. Do you think it survived?

How old do you think the mother is? Her hands look like the hands of a 70 year old woman.

thank you, Christine, for sharing all these beautiful pics. I do have one to submit, I just have to scan it in (someday)

Blessings,
Sandwich

I agree. This pic stopped me in my tracks. I litterally studied this image for five of more minutes.

I feel totally convicted. I whine when my Boppy isn't around. Here is this beautifully strong woman doing what she needs to do. Not only for her child but for someone else's. (I'm assuming.) This is a beautiful portrait of service...and my new iPod wallpaper!
