The photograph above is my mother-in-law, María Josefa, and her first cousin, José Manuel in Spain about 1935. The photograph below was taken of the same two children a few years later,
during the Spanish Civil War.
These two cousins had an especially close relationship. Their parents were two brothers who married two sisters, so they are considered double first cousins. My mother-in-law was an only child, so her playmates were her cousins. You can see in the photographs below, that although they are both now in their 80s, they are still very close.
