All the pictures on this page, except the two studio pictures, are taken by Henry Schnautz, 1941-1948. All photos all rights reserved. Esperanza sent the smiling studio picture to Henry in Sept 1943. The other one looks younger to me but I have no date. Two different copies of it were found with Henry's photos.
