The little photographer and her subject are my second cousin, once removed, Elda Mae Heins (1915-1998)* and my birth mother Alta Mae Slater (1917-1986). The other photo was clearly shot at the same time, although I somehow doubt Elda took it.

*We share descent from Mercy Ann Darling Webb Walsh--from her first husband Abner Webb for me and through her second marriage to Joshua Walsh for Elda.
