February 27

Drawn from on old photo-postcard dating from the 20s. Alethia was Josh's mother, Lena his grandmother. Someone wrote their names on the back, with a caveat! Alethia grew up dirt poor in Alabama (and went on to become Miss Alabama). I love that this mother and baby are dressed in their best clothes, including a pristine white embroidered gown for the baby, outside their shabby wooden house, posing for a professional photograph.
