Adorable Vintage Snapshots of a Little Girl Posing With Her Birthday Cake Each Year From When She Was One Year Old in 1948

Here is a sweet set of photographs of a little girl and her birthday cake. It must have been a tradition for the family. Each is an annual photograph of a cake with one candle for each year and a pose in the best clothes on a birthday.

Mom and dad were not the best photographers but they were consistent. Our little girl grows up. And she must be 62 today.

These are from a very large group of negatives found on an eBay estate sale by a Flickr's member anyjazz65. There were a couple prints with the photo lab date stamp among all the negatives which established the date of one of the birthdays.

It must have been in the south of the US somewhere. Lots of grass and leafy trees make the background of many of the shots.
