With my in-laws visiting this past weekend, I got a lot of new photos and accompanying histories of my husband’s family. Here’s a cute one of my mother in-law’s grandmother, Corinne Condon, her siblings, and their Irish nanny.
Corinne is the youngest at the right, and by far the feistiest. I love that she’s not even smiling as she sticks out her tongue. It’s pure animosity, and what’s even greater about this moment in time is the nanny’s indifference.
Perhaps it was one of those instances where the kid didn’t want to cooperate. Perhaps the photographer chose to accept her disgruntled expression. Either way, I think it makes an adorable photo.
Corinne was born in 1911, placing this photo between 1915 and 1917.
