Ahhh.... someone's first communion. How sweet.

Their First Holy Communion, perhaps? That would explain the fancy dresses, veils and crosses on their necklaces.

Great blog, by the way - I love to find "forgotten bookmarks" in used books myself!

This may be a Confirmation/First Communion picture. Pope Pius X lowered the age of First Communion from 12 to 7 in 1910. Until then, it was customary at age 12 to receive both sacraments.

I have a picture of my grandmother about the same age, and in the same clothes.
