Earlier this morning, my friend Heidi sent me a message making sure that I’d seen this Pin. And I immediately wanted to try the idea with some old family photos I have. Fortunately, we had some iron-on transfer paper of the right type. I printed out two 5×7 images. The first of my great-grandmother Anna at about age 7 on her First Communion.


I was particularly struck by how much she reminded me of the Rosie portrait from the Hine photo. It’s particularly striking to me because the two photos could have been the same year.

I also printed one of my favorite photos of my great-grandparents, Anna (same as the 7 year old above) and Adam. It was taken sometime in 1931 and they just look amazing. Maybe at some point I’ll figure out where they were going.


I played around with it just a little bit while I was taking a break for lunch. I have a few other photos of them that I love too and she’s always wearing the best hats.
