Hello, fellow bloggers! I've been away from blogging for MUCH too long! I'll have a lot of reading to do, catching up with everybody and looking back over these past few months to see what you've all been up to. So don't be surprised to see comments from me on posts that you've already forgotten you wrote!
Lately, I've become a bit obsessed with the images of a little girl who lived over 100 years ago. She was a gorgeous little beauty, with curly hair and big eyes. She always is shown with her trademark tight-lipped smile. You may have seen her if you collect any sort of early 20th century photo postcards.
Years ago, when I began collecting Victorian and Edwardian images, I kept coming across her. She must have been a famous model in her day. I have several of the postcards she appeared on, some even on my walls in frames, as if she were a relative of mine.
But who is she?
I've been really enjoying Pinterest, and collecting all sorts of beautiful images I come across on the internet that inspire me (some from my favorite bloggers, I may add!). During my hunt for images on Pinterest, I came across this little girl, and my interest in her was rekindled.
I now have found over 100 images of her, and have found other collectors who have the same questions on the little girl's identity. Some believe she may have been the photographer's daughter, due to the shear volume of images bearing her likeness. Some believe she was French. And some (including me) think she had a sister, maybe a twin. Somebody must have known her or written about her. I am obsessed with finding out her true identity.
Here are the images I own of my favorite little girl model. Some are from my collection of vintage images of children with cats, and I have a very beautiful series of the little girl herself.
Do any of you know who this pretty little girl was?
