Two lovely photos of Violet Bishop Ramsden

Above: This wonderful photo of Vi and her daughter Enid is one of my favourites of the hundreds of family photos that I have. It never fails to bring a smile to my face- Vi is so clearly a mother who happily adores her baby. This photo is another that had never been sighted by me until last year when Alison Ball so kindly shared it with me. Enid was born in 1902, so this photo would have been taken in 1903 when the family still lived in Melbourne.

I love this photo of Vi...she has such a lovely kind face. Violet was the child who looked most like the Hughan side of the family, with the blue eyes and fair skin. The others tended to be darker like the Bishops.
