A Mother's Keepsakes
The notation on the back of this photo instructs the colorist that Great-Grandma Annie's eyes are light blue, but they didn't turn out that way. Another much larger portrait of Annie with much more coloring does show her blue eyes. Was that portrait ordered by her mother as this one was? What did they cost her? Annie died very young, many years before her mother did. I can imagine that Great-great-grandmother Anna Britta was glad many times that she had these done. My daughter also died as a young woman and I love the photos left from her life.
