Little Miss Pears

My sister and I are sorting through piles of Stuff, which includes a lot of artwork and photographs. This is one to keep. It is a photograph of one of our mother's two sisters as a baby. The picture has been tinted and painted by our grandmother. We see from the back that this photo cost 17/6, which was a lot of money in those days. Sadly, we never knew this aunt as she died young when I was a baby. Charming, or what?
