A Portrait of Katherine Katya 1922
« on: February 20, 2006, 09:38:48 AM »
Hi there,

Here is a photo of Katya /  Katherine dated 1922.  I have have only one family letter in my possession that is translated from 1919 that states she was 4-1/2 when they left St. Petersburg.

On the back it looks like adult writing at the top for the date and the message from the little girl.  I like how it shows how she is learning how to write with the lines ruled in as a guide.

Thanks again!

Cynthia :)

The child's writing at the bottom of the photo says:

(To) Dear Uncle
Shura from
Katya.

The adult's writing at the top provides the date:

10 March 1922
