One face bearing many images.

Grandma and friends in the 1940s

I was going through some old family photographs and did a double-take when I came across this picture.  When I first looked at this picture, I thought my cousin Rosie was standing in the middle, calling out to some friend off-camera. The young lady is actually my grandmother. It's in the eyes, somehow, and that fleeting expression. 

The resemblance to other descendants doesn't end there because in other photographs taken that day, I can see traces of my own mother and other cousins.
