Seeing them gives you a small glimmer into what life was like. Wearing dresses buttoned up high on the neck would drive me nuts. Tight, scratchy and less comfortable materials than we are used to, besides. And the hat. I once tried to copy my aunt's hat in paper for a fourth grade project. I think I still have a picture of it and now I'm bent on finding it and seeing how well I did.
And, look at that fancy chair! The fancy chairs and props the studios used in those days for photos also fascinates me. Some of you know I take pictures of chairs where ever I go.Then Jim reminded me I already have some pretty silly photos. This one, an imitation of Minny Pearl while we were shopping for a hat for him.
And, here I am up a tree picking apples last year. But somehow, I don't think I look silly. Aunt Alice probably didn't think she looked sill either. Time will tell.
