Mom :: Before she was Mom

My Mother would have been 83 years old today. I thought that I had seen all of the pictures of her through the years, but amongst her things we found the picture below. I don't know whether it is her or not but it was in the same drawer as her marriage license and certificate.


Whoever it is, she is a cutie! Below are some (okay, a lot of) confirmed photos of Mom. What do you think? Is the above photo my Mother? As always, double-click to view a larger version of the photos.

    
1928 and 1934

     
1936 and 1937

    
1941 and 1942

    
1943 – fifteen years old – yes, 15!

    
1944 – sixteen years old

    
1945 (Junior Prom) and 1946

In May 2008, for her 80th birthday, I posted some photos of her in her later years.

Becky, I agree with Carol. What a wonderful large collection of photos of your mother. The top photo is just adorable.

I would bet a lot of money that this photo is your mom based on the other photos. The eyes are what convinced me too.

I vote yes. Nose and upper lip also look similar.
