Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Here is another Confirmation photograph from the Leaf Album. The style of card makes me think the photo might be from the very early 20th century, further making me wonder if this is the younger of the two girls in our first Communion photograph. Based on what Iggy told us about Communion, the veil was a tradition. Also, some girls wore dresses handed down from other family members. There are a couple similarities between the dress pictured above and the older girls’ dress in the previous photograph, although they are not clearly the same dress. Some alterations could have been made to individualize the dress. Or this could be a completely different girl. There was no photographer information on the back of the card.

I have added a new category: Religious to handle the various religious photos I have previously posted and those that will come along in the future.

    Interesting photo. I’m not sold on this being the same girl, but the candlestick and table look like they may be the same. :)

    Its a shame we don’t have any names to work with.

    Happy Valentines Day.

    To me, these girls might be cousins. You can see some family resemblances.

    Like you, I know virtually nothing about these ceremonies, but it’s fun to look at the pretty pageantry I see in these photos. And I must say, that fur/shag thing she’s standing on is striking! :-)

    It seems to me to be the smaller girl a few years later at here first communion. She is much taller as compared with the table, even if a different one, tables all fall within the same basic height range. a different studio setting yes, but physical features such as her ear shape and length, from the top lip to the top of eye brows , the unique downward curve on the mouth, the same grin on the mouth as well. the straight line and length of the nose in comparison to the size of the head, the distance of the eyes to nose etc. If not the little girl a few years on, then a spot on relative or other sister.


  5. All relatives for sure. She may be the younger gal in the previous photo..she has stunning features:)
