Curious mind is curious!

My Mom took lots and lots of childhood photos with a 110 film camera and I'm sorting through some of them. As you might guess, I was born in 1977. I notice that in most of the photos, the subject is always in the left side of the frame, almost to the point of being cropped. Is there an explanation for this, like an eyesight problem, or could it just be just a flaw of the camera? The pictures are not blurry, so it is not as if the camera shifted when the shutter was pressed. Is Mom just a lousy shutterbug? The pattern is so consistent that I am baffled.

I know about the rule of thirds, and that centering the subject is a surefire way to create a bland photos, but I'm not sure cropping, dynamism and tension where what she was going for with a picture of me and my great-grandmother :-D
