One Young Lady Over 20 Years

You don't find a collection like this too often. Photographs of the same young lady, in essentially the same pose, taken over a period of twenty years. I haven't spent a lot of time around children in my life, so I'm not very good at estimating their ages....I'm making a wild guess that the first picture was taken around age five. So that would make the last image of a young lady aged about twenty five.
There are dates written on the borders. In order, 1922, 1928, 1929, 1931, 1932, 1934, 1935, two from 1937, 1938, two from 1940, and 1942. Born around the end of World War 1, the last picture begins not long after the United States entry into World War 2.
