A short bio, eh? I am Sheila, & I am short.
Oh wow, This is a classic. She is adorable and looks the same throughout the pics you’ve posted, no matter what age. (Did she pull off the doll’s leg?
Thanks, Kay. She did retain that look throughout her life, & her grin was always a bit on the impish side. As for the doll… well, I suspect it was a photographer’s prop, so Little Gladys was PROBABLY innocent; no guarantees….
A little cutie, super photograph, thanks for sharing Sheila …
Thank you, Tom. I’m having a good time posting these!
Grand stuff, Sheila! What a beautiful portrait of Gladys!
Thanks, Mike. She inherited that little pointy chin from her mother Mabel. I in turn got Charlie’s chin, with a minor dimple in it….
Very lovely photo. Sheila.
Many thanks, Steve!
And thank you!
Thanks, Roy. Not too sure about that doll, though – it looks a bit angst-ridden, & it appears to be missing a leg…. Oh, well; well-played-with, I guess.
Lovely.. this guy had an eye for it !
Thanks, Steve. I really am going to do some research into this photographer – very good archives around here, & I’m sure this person, male or female, was very well known. He or she obviously was a specialist in children’s photography – all those props belonged to the studio. My mother remembered the session.
Another sweetheart image of your cute Mom Sheila. >Ron<
Thank you again, Antanas.
Too cute for words…
Thanks, Jayne. She was, wasn’t she? But like her daughter after her, she had many words for many things!
