This post is for day 28, the final day of the February Photo Collage Festival.
The photograph above from my February Photo Collage is of my great great great aunt, Mary Brown (nee Fullerton) (1851-1935) . This photograph was taken during the 1930s while Mary was living at Portland, New South Wales, with her daughter Elva and Elva's family. Mary was aged in her 80s and was probably blind at this time. At that time, this photograph was entered into a 'beauty in old age' competition. While Mary did not win the competition, she does look very beautiful in this photograph, in my opinion :)
Location of original: In the possession of a cousin, Rosalie. Many thanks Rosalie.
Date: early 1930s.
