These two photos are of (top) my great grandmother Emma (Walker) Spencer and her daughter Ivy Spencer. They were taken on the same day in between 1900 and 1910 I believe. Grandmother Emma had a great sense of humour and looked a lot like my dad's eldest sister who I was very fond of.

But the funny thing is to look at Ivy's face. She could be a clone of my eldest sister when she was young. As my sister says she got the "lantern" jaw, which quite a few got also.

Emma had eight living children although sometimes children who died in infancy were not always listed which is sad really - not to even be listed as having being born. I rather think the parents would have remembered each and every one.

Ivy became a teacher as did my eldest sister before becomming a nurse. There seemed to be quite a few teachers ad nurses in the family... respectable professions for gals in those days I suppose. Posted by Picasa
