Another interesting point about these pictures is the fact that only Marguerite Holahan is pictured with her McCue cousins and yet she had two older sisters close in age, amongst seven living siblings at the time. If more of the Holahan children visited with the McCue children, why were they not all photographed together? It could be the lack of financial resources, health of the children, connection between eldest and youngest sibling, or any other number of reasons.

Also, where was Eleanor Holahan McCue, who took the photos and what kind of camera was used since these are not portrait studio photos?
...Some of these questions may never be answerable.
These images will be contrasted in the next post on the paternal McCue cousins, the Hayes.
In this photograph, is the middle individual really Marguerite Holahan or is it Estelle Holahan? Their age difference is only two years, making Marguerite two years older and Estelle four years older than William McCue, seen on the right. So the question then becomes, how much older does the tallest female in this photograph appear in comparison to the male?
I leave it to the viewer. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
