1972 Grandmother etching1972 Grandmother etching

This etching print of my Mother’s mother, Mildred Stookey, née Wilkinson, was done on a zinc plate. She was the wife of a gentleman farmer and they lived in a brick two story Italianate farmhouse with a copper mansard roof. As children we used to ring the outside bell that had been used to call the farmhands in from the fields for their meals. My Mother’s elder sister would drive a horse drawn wagon into the nearby village for fun.
