Could be the Earliest Picture of Helen Keller

I love Helen Keller; her story has always intrigued me. This picture is from July of 1888. Historians say it could be the the earliest picture of her and Anne Sullivan. Cool! Read more on

I was thinking about Helen Keller just the other day (I think there was a quote on a billboard or something that brought her to mind) and it occurred to me that perhaps Anne Sullivan was the really remarkable one. She saw the possibilities where no one else did. Helen, of course, overcame her disabilities to accomplish a lot, but it was Anne who saw that in her before she ever did.

Bob-you're right...she was amazing. With her time, love, and effort she truly helped Helen live a better life.
