Last week, the New England Historic Genealogical Society released this wonderful photograph of a young Helen Keller vacationing in Massachusetts in July, 1888. She is sitting outside on a chair and holding a doll. Her teacher, Anne Sullivan is next to her. Interestingly, "doll" was Helen's first signed word, in March of 1887. You can read the full story here - it covers some details about Helen's life and also the story behind the photograph.
