Another beautiful portrait of my grandmother

grandmother 2

This photo and the one in yesterday’s post were taken about 7 years apart, but it’s obvious that she changed a lot during that time. Her face was thinner here and she had the ’40’s slim eyebrows. She looks very glamourous here, even though I know she didn’t lead an incredibly glamourous life.

My grandmother had a couple jobs that I’m certain of. First off, she was a beautician and had her own shop. I believe it was called “Opal’s Beauty Shop” or the like. She did many a permanents in her day. After that, she worked on the factory line at Westinghouse, a light bulb manufacturer. She retired there in the early 80’s. I know she was a very dedicated and hard worker and valued employee.

Until next time Swellions.
