How much more beautiful she would look if she smiled. I guess it was the way that photographs were taken in that era. Thank you for sharing pretty Anna Belle with us. Even her name is beautiful... Anna Belle.
Thank you everyone for your input about this photo.  Why did they not smile.  Is it because of hardship? You can see the pain in their eyes. Thank you again my dear wiki tree family.

Anna has a lot of hair, and she is not smiling.  Wish I had that much.  I was trying to see if she had a bow in her hair, which a lot of the gals from this time period had. That would make her hair look even fuller than it is.

She also looks like she might have bags under her eyes. Was she having a bad day.  Poor thing. She is very beautiful. I love the type of dress that is is wearing, with the slightly higher collar.

My husband has his grandmother's wedding dress, and the necks from that time-frame are so thin. At one point, I actually fit into it, but it hurt my neck.  lol

This is a great picture. Thank you for sharing it with your WikiTree family.

Have a great Friday and God Bless!
