A Mother's Love

Published on March 17th, 2022

As we celebrate Mothering Sunday, we bring you a special selection of photographs depicting mothers with their children as photographed by Frith photographers from 1890-1940, together with some sweet, sentimental quotes about motherhood.

We hope you enjoy seeing these today, and that they bring back happy memories for you.

"Mothers and their children are in a category all their own. There's no bond so strong in the entire world. No love so instantaneous and forgiving.”
Gail Tsukiyama.

Rudyard Kipling.

"Being a mother is like being a gardener of souls. You tend your children, make sure the light always touches them; you nourish them. You sow your seeds, and reap what you sow."
Karen White.
