“Several years ago, I obtained a photographic album with pictures of an British family dating from the First World War up to 1928,” writes Christopher H. Jordan. “Within it there are quite a few pictures of three photogenic young sisters. If I have read the album-page notations correctly, there names appear to be Audrey, Celia, and Olive. Regrettably, there is no surname. Although there are photographs seemingly taken during all four seasons, I have chosen to feature these eight images from their summertime visits to various beaches. No matter how often I view these images, the exuberance and sheer joy expressed in these children’s faces never fails to brighten my day and make me smile.”
