This framed portrait of my sister and I is one of two that came out of an old judges home in the little N.E. Louisiana town of Homer La. There was an estate sale back in the 1940's and my paternal grandmother (me ma) bought both frames. She was told then of the two frame's age and I heard it repeated many times growing up. Circa 1880's Her intention was to one day have her grandchildren's picture put into each of the frames. This was accomplished in 1961 with this portrait/photo. She had both done and one framed picture hung in their house in La. and the other hung in my parents house in Florida. After everyone died my sister and I each ended up with one of them. This one is mine.
