I am always fascinated at the changes age brings to the faces of individuals, especially from child to adult and from adult to old age. These are the child-to-adult faces of my mom, Audrey Meinzen Doyle, and her sister, Geraldine (who chose to use "Jeree" instead) Meinzen Todd Foulk.
Jeree, on the left, was born in November, 1918, and is about 8 in this photo. On the far right is Audrey, born in June, 1915, and is about 14 here.
I suspect the center photo was taken in about 1936, when Jeree was about 18 and Audrey about 21.
I found this tiny (1 1/4" x 1 3/4") photo when looking through my grandmother's album and immediately loved it. I like Aunt Jeree's hair style and how her eyes make contact with me through the lens of the camera. She began wearing glasses as a child but chose not to wear them in either of these photographs. I also think the matching coats they are wearing are interesting.
Do you like to compare photos of people as they age? Do you have school and young adult photos of people you know and love?
