Christine Williams Toddler Portrait

My mother, Christine Williams. Photo taken approx. 1955, in Ashland, Kentucky. My mother and I recently came across a box of pictures and old 8mm film reels. This picture was in the box, along with many others, that I’ll be posting on here in the near future. I’m sending the 8mm film reels to for conversion to DVD. Upon receipt, I’ll be posting the old home movies on YouTube.
