Beautiful family portrait

One of Shorpy's best!

Bring it on

That little girl is so clearly ready to take on the world.

Quiet dignity

in the mother's face.

Perfect title

The mother's expression is so "right"! She has pride and dignity and loves her children, regardless of the circumstances. Wonderful!

That gaze

The little girl has incredible eyes. I'd love to know what became of her.

What. A. Face.

Unforgettable.
