The Ten O'Neil Sisters
The O'Neil sisters, April 22, 1946.
Mrs O'Neil, daughters and grandkids, April 13, 1963.
Three O'Neil sisters return to parade with sons and daughters, April 6, 1980.
There was a time when big families were common in Boston. And when I say big, I mean twelve children, including ten girls. That was the O'Neil family of Wyman street, Jamaica Plain during the 1940s and 50s. They were a staple at the annual Easter Parade in their identical outfits, and of course were favorites of newspaper photographers and editors.
