A Century Ago

If my grandmother, Laurella, were alive today, she would be receiving a letter from the Queen congratulating her on being 100 years old. In her honour, I wanted to share these two photos I have of her, from days gone by.

This first one is of my grandparents and my mom. I like the way Grandma is trying to get my mom to look at the camera, and the fact that you can see the shadow of the photographer (who appears to be a woman wearing a hat) on the ground at their feet.

This is my mom, Grandma and my aunt. The pigtails and the gingham dress my mother is wearing always make me think of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz but in spite of that, it really is a sweet photo of the three of them together.
