From Left to Right :Margaret Ross (Smith)~ Elizabeth Ross (Duthie)~ Annie Ross
The Ross Sisters ~The 3 oldest daughters of 8 children born to William Ross and Margaret Arthur, Margaret 1879~Elizabeth 1871 and Annie in 1876. I'm not sure of the occasion for the photo above, Could it have something to do with the narrow piece of paper Ann is holding in hand? While Margaret and Ann's dresses are plainer than Elizabeth's perhaps it was taken around the time of Elizabeth's wedding in 1897?
