omg!!
this photo is so beautiful and priceless. i suggest you frame it and frame the frame, just in case, to preserve it.
I too lovee vintage photos, there's this classic flavor to it and it's irreplaceable.
Our city (yes it's the capital) and house was once got looted in the midst of chaos and riot due to government collapsing. everything was gone and my dad said to us that they could take everything he didn't care, but the only thing he hoped that was left untouched were our photos since the day we were born (my mom kept a complete album picturing stages of life for her every kids). and he got his wish.
sorry, quite a long comment lol. i just want to illustrate how precious old (or even new) photos are to me, so again this pic with your beautiful mum is priceless!

that is my Daddy's handwriting. He was a terrible speller, but the best storyteller. We can all weave a good story because of him,
