(Digital Image; Photograph Privately Held By Cynthia Shenette; Text Copyright (c) 2012 Cynthia Shenette) Are these three ladies sisters, cousins, or friends? I don't really see a lot of a resemblance between the three. The young woman seated appears to be the same young woman named Kasi or Katherine in this wedding photograph here. The young lady standing on the left is almost painfully thin. I wonder if she had recently recovered from an illness when the photograph was taken. The photograph was probably taken in the late 1910s. Again, I believe all of these young women were members of Worcester's Polish community.
If you recognize any of the ladies in this photo I'd love to hear from you!
Update 10/29/12 - I recently noticed that the the thin woman on the left is the bride in a wedding photo posted on my other blog, Heritage Zen. Thankfully, she looks healthier and is clearly not so thin in her wedding portrait.
