This is my grandmother, by T M Ronaldson, 1934, at the age of 53. The picture was left to my aunt Ursula Grant Duff, who left it to her daughter Sheila, who left it to me. Jacqueline Taber has restored it and given it a new frame, and she very kindly delivered it this afternoon.
I need to get some advice on how to avoid getting a patch of reflected light when I photograph pictures from directly in front. There's no doubt an elementary answer to this problem.
