Virginia Ann Robbins

Found her on the 1940 Census for Barnstable, Massachusetts.

This girl!

The daughter of Frank Robbins and I are the same age or close.

Most Adorable Face on Shorpy

I may be wrong, but I've been a Shorpy fan for a while, and I keep coming back to this sweet face. It may be the sweetest face on Shorpy

Bearing up

It’s hard for a girl to get her hair arranged under such crowded circumstances, but that does not seem to have affected her mood adversely.

Such, I dimly recall, is the optimism of youth.

Just Beautiful

Hope for the future in those eyes.

Freckle Faced Cutie

What a cute young lady.

She looks happy and intelligent.

Maybe, even a little tomboy. Either way she is a daughter to be proud of.

Wonder what her story is?
