Treasure Chest Thursday: Favorite Photos

Here are three of my favorite childhood photos of my mother, Doris Priscilla Adams Sabo (7 June 1923- 23 July 2008) and her big sister, Annie Barbara Adams (3 August 1921- 30 January 1997).

These photos were part of a set taken at the same time, in either Massachusetts or Maine, places where my grandfather had often been transferred for his work with Western Union.

By the lightweight looks of the dresses, I’d say these pictures were probably taken in the summer of 1926, when my mother turned three and Aunt Barbara turned five years old.

Both my mother and my aunt loved to read and, although the book was likely a photographer’s prop, they were clearly engrossed in the story book, which made for a beautiful photograph.
