(As I start posting again to Pieces of the Past, I am continuing to feature old family pictures that I used each Friday on my blog, Funoldhag. I don't think most of these made it to this blog; but, if they did, it will be fun to see them again.)_
Today our sweet little models are Nan and Nelle Pearce, my mom and my aunt, when they were very young little girls back in the late 1890's. I have this picture in a pretty old antique frame hanging by my fireplace in a group of other old photos. This is so sweet. Nan is wearing a dark long dress with a lace trimmed collar. Nelle wears a lighter colored dress with a double ruffle feature around the neck and shoulder line. Both little girls appear to be in awe of the camera - do you suppose it was one of those that the photographer went under a dark cover when the picture was being taken?
