Anna Marie

Lately, I have been using the Library Company of Philadelphia for sourcing portraits of people as it is a consistent challenge to find proper images. They have excellent archives, online but often they don't know the names associated with the images. Such is the case here. I call her Anna Marie. Completed, 2014. Traded to Marga Grima.
