My great great grandmother

Here's my great great grandmother Karin in a straw hat seated next to her sick sister Ruth back in 1905. Ruth had tuberculosis and was staying at a sanatorium. In the day, they moved the beds outdoors as I understand it. This picture is so sad and beautiful. Ruth died not too long afterwards.  Karin mourned her the rest of her life.
