Photo Corner: Sisters

Eileen (Eva) Gasworth Dlugus and Sylvia Gasworth Zuckerman, taken around 1920Contributed by Judy Paris, Floral Park New York
Two of my mother’s sisters, Eileen (Eva) Gasworth Dlugus and Sylvia Gasworth Zuckerman, taken around 1920. I never knew it existed until a few months ago. What makes this picture so special to me is that my Aunt Sylvia developed some sort of serious illness shortly after this photo was taken which left her humped over and somewhat deformed. This gives me a glimpse of the beautiful child she was before all that happened. She went on to become a lawyer, which was very rare for a woman at that time.

  1. I’ve always been interested in family genealogy and listening to the stories my grandma told me, especially about diseases my ancestors had. There weren’t many but when my sister became ill with what they termed Lupus a few months before she was married, I was even more curious. No one in our immmediate family by that I mean my grandparents, parents and aunts and uncles were all extremely healthy and lived well into their 80′s and 90′s. However, my grandmother’s mother was said to die of “her blood turning to water”. I took this to mean she perhaps had anemia. My grandmother’s cousin died in her early 30′s from some rare disease. I thought they might have called it consumption but her symptoms didn’t sound like that. Anyway, the story about Judy Paris’s Aunt Sylvia reminded me of these young women in my family line. I enjoy all these pictures. Noreen Ott’s mother and twin sister are just so pristeen looking. I wish we could travel back thru time.

  2. Nice family pictures.
    Am looking for someone with experience using digital camera copies of old family photos, to send via HP Image Maker program, by email. Norma
