  1. I'm intrigued by the photo. Alice looks like a very interesting woman. I'm hoping that you'll tell us more about her in a future post.

    1. I know so little about her. She is someone I need to research.

  2. Even though you may not know much about her, what a treasure to have a picture!

    1. The picture was in one of those old ornate frames. My first memory of the picture is seeing it on the wall of my grandmother's home.

  3. She has a very firm look. Was she your mother's grandmother? They both have that firm look.

    1. No, Alice was my father's paternal grandmother. Mama seldom smiled in pictures.
