The fifth step in my A-Z of quirky ancestor antics - E is for elegant and ever-so-cheeky

My maternal grandmother, Lily Ann KINGSBURY, was a lovely grandmother who was devoted to her family. She was a very elegant lady, as well as being gentle and wise. Trained as a tailoress, she made many of her own clothes.

As well as being elegant, she could also be a bit cheeky ...


  1. When I look at that forst portrait E for exquisite comes to mind.

  2. You're right, she really was:)

  3. Definitely elegant in dress and her own style. Love that first shot :) and yes, that cheeky poked tongue.

    Your family photos are great!
