For Mother’s Day I figured I would share two silhouettes that are part of my collection. They came from my Grandmother, Lucille (Beiersdorf) Chvarack Ash (1920-2011).
Silhouettes used to be quite popular before photography became affordable. After that they were more of a novelty.
First, we have my Grandmother, Lucille’s silhouette. Don’t know when it was done, but I guess she was a few years old.
Next, the silhouette of her daughter, my Mother. It was done in 1945. She was a few years old then. So I guess the two were done about 20 years apart.
Mom’s has a few more details cut into it. But I notice both girls had quite curly hair. Can’t say I inherited that trait.
Happy Mother’s Day!
