  1. They are looking very serious about it all. Nice photo. I like they way they lean in and touch each other.

  2. I like how grandmother has her pocketbook--like a lady should have. :)

    1. ...and of course she has some coins tied neatly in a handkerchief, pieces of candy, some safety pins, a comb, and a small round case of face powder.

    2. Oh, of course! How many times my grandmother gave me a "spit bath" with her handkerchief!

  3. I'm intrigued by the chair that the grandmother is sitting in. It looks so ornate. I wonder if it was a prop at a photographer's studio.

    1. I believe it was a prop of the photographer's studio. I've seen the chair before in other pictures.
