Vintage Photo Sunday #11

December 27, 1922
The family of Mr. J.J. Kehoe of Ida House, New Ross, Co. Wexford. The little girl on the left is holding Bedtime Stories, presumably a Poole Studios prop. She, like all of the girls, have embroidery on their clothes – wondering if this was all done at home? The daughter/sister sitting in the chair at right looks studious, but on closer inspection, she’s been captured “reading” a furniture catalogue, and I think she’s wearing a wrist watch – don’t think I’ve seen one in such an early photo before… Date: 27 December 1922
