My mother, born in 1945, had a large cyst over her right eye, which could not be removed until she was five years old. She was only four when this photo was taken, but she remembers someone saying she had turn the "ugly" away from the camera. She was extremely bashful and this really hurt her feelings. I think she was a beautiful little girl (of course) and I cannot imagine a photographer saying such a thing today. | Click image for Comments.
