This photo is my great grandmother Mary Shaughnessy 

Her husband died on 1 Nov 1933, just 4 days later her daughter-in-law, my grandmother died, Mary Ann moved in with her son's family to care for the 2 mother less children and lived with them until her death in 1954. My mother told me that Mary Ann always braided her hair before going to bed. When I had long hair as a teenager I also braided my hair before bed. 

My mother's comment, you look so much like her, short and dumpy with hair in braids, I'm not sure that was a compliment to either of us! 

 Location: Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire, England. Date: 1925.

What a lovely photo and story M, thank you for sharing.  She certainly looks every bit as loving and caring as you describe in your narrative.
