This is a very old Polaroid print. Cecily thinks it was taken during a Boston Ballet Nutcracker performance in 1969 or 1970, by an old family friend, Don Ridley, of Beverly, Massachusetts. Don bought one of the first Polaroid color cameras when they became available. They were fantastic!!

This wonderful small print was in terrible shape. Very faded and loaded with fingerprints that are quite dramatic!
I cleaned it up and brightened it a lot. It's not perfect, but that's life.
