This is Annie. She was my aunt.
When I knew her later in her life, Annie had a strong personality, always seeming to know what she wanted, but also she was a very kind-hearted woman. I expect she was similarly inclined as a child. She certainly looks as though she was!
I’ve had this photo for years, it’s been in the family for as long as I can remember but I only thought to colour it recently. The colour of the dress will almost certainly not have been pink, but it just seemed right as her sister – my mother – was put into a lilac dress by their mother for a wedding, about a decade later, so I suspect that my grandmother liked dressing her children in warm colours.
As you’ll see in later posts, I love colouring photos of children. Look at those pudgy little arms and her nearly-neat hair in ringlets. And the white shoes and socks. Delightful!
