Portrait of Claire Lawrence Levesque and Catherine Lynch, Undated


Scope and Contents

This photo shows two young women posing in front of a pastoral photographer’s backdrop. The young woman on the left is seated and wears a white dress and veil, while the young woman on the right is standing and wearing a black, drop-waist dress. There is no inscription on the reverse. According to Ms. Padgett, the woman in white is her mother, Claire Lawrence Levesque, who is dressed for her Confirmation. The woman in black is Catherine Lynch, a close friend of Claire’s, and the woman for whom Ms. Padgett is named. The backside of this photo is slightly obscured by the remnants of black paper to which it was once adhered.
