I Do Not Have an Old Photo of Me, But...

I read a post from valmnz where she answered a challenge (originally posted by Kasman ) to post the earliest photo she had of herself. I thought this would be a great challenge to get in on, but unfortunately I have no idea where my photos of me as an infant are. Well, I guess technically that is not true. I know where they are -- packed away in a storage shed. What I should say is I cannot get to them right now.

But I did recently get a batch of old family photos from a cousin and they included this photo of my mom from her school days. I guess she would have been 11 or 12 years old in the photo. Obviously she was the prettiest girl in her class. It is hard to believe the photo was taken 75 years ago! I guess school photos have been around for a long, long time.

That's a lovely photo, just look at her beautiful hair! How nice that your cousin passed the photo on to you.

What a beauty! I have been seeing posts like this and seriously, I am thinking of joining the craze too!

I think old family photos are a great resource and reminder especially of those distant family member we hardly knew. They keep us in touch with our heritage.

And here I thought you were going to tell us that you went through gender reassignment. emoticon :winking:
What a LOVELY photo. I love the old photos of the 40s. Your mother is beautiful. She was a few years older than my Mom, so it seems, who was born in 1934. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, she looks so grown up for 12! I would have thought that was her senior photo from high school, or even from college. Sweet!
