Please Meet Evelyn

Hello my dear friends,

I hope you don't mind,but this is just a very short post today in which I would like to share a few old photographs with you from my collection.

I would like you to meet Evelyn Casey.

I love this photo of this young girl simply because of her natural beauty and when you look at her it's like she is looking inside you, almost like she knows you.

Evelyn is 16 years old in 1900 and she is from Irish decent.
These pictures were taken of her while she was trying to get a job in a factory in the U S.
She was one of the many working children of those days.

I hope you are all well.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
