Francis and Katheryn Bates


A lovely portrait of Francis Bates and her daughter Katheryn. It's dated January 1934. I looked at this photo for a long time. noting the details. The mother's hair style, the mother-daughter similar features, the magazine they are looking at, their dresses. Just lovely. Photographer Northland Studio, Toledo, Ohio
