"I was born in 1894 and was 80 years old on December 5, 1974. This dress was the first garment placed on me and was purchased by my grandmother and given to my mother as a present for her first grandchild. It was worn for a short period on my 3 daughters as well as my first grandson, who was photographed in it. He was born in 1941."
The above note, written by Georgianna Beard Cartwright, was attached to the gown worn by the child in the picture and is still in possession by the family. The young girl in the photo, Georgianna Beard Cartwright wrote the note and is shown holding her first born Evelyn Jean Cartwright Watkins.
Photo taken in New Castle in 1918.
