Nina Louise Winn was born in 1877, the youngest child of George Prentiss Winn and Melissa Sarah Bacon, who died when Nina was only nine.
Two other siblings, Edith Lily and Arthur, died young, leaving Nina and her big brother George living with their father George Prentiss Winn near the corner of Summer and Mystic Streets in 1902.
Dressed here in a costume — perhaps for a play — is a young Nina Louise Winn of Arlington, Massachusetts.
It would also be fun to imagine her as a model posing for one of “Aunt Sue’s” paintings. Susanna Adams Winn (“Aunt Sue” or “SAW” as Nina refers to her in her diary) was an artist and makes frequent appearances in Nina’s diary.
