Photo Number 104


This is Mayme, could she be the twin sister of Edith Hermes ( Photo 101)  from the other day?   This is a real photo postcard with Diamonds in the corners..we can date it 1907 to 1909.
It was possibly hand delivered as there is no stamp.  Jinglebobs Grandmother was a Bauer, he told us that in a comment awhile back,  I am not certain of her first name.  If  his Grandma is not Lizzie then she is a relative of his grandmothers.

All these photos from South Dakota/Illinois are so interwoven..it has been very interesting.  Photos number 102 and 103 have seen action lately, and one of the previous photos may now have names.. photo number eighty one!  I find it fairly exciting that a photo may have a name!!
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update** 
Info from Norkio about the clothing!  What a beautiful suit! That's called a Tailor Made, as in it was made by the tailor. She has gloves that go to her elbows and the sleeve of her coat ends at her elbow. She may have had on a blouse with short sleeves, no sleeves, or just a dickie type thing. Lovely skirt too. By this time period, hoops weren't used as much, just a couple petticoats to hold out the shape of the skirt. The pedestal is blocking a view of the pleats in the front of her skirt, but I bet it's very pretty.


*** Update Feb 24, 2010 ***Yes it turns out that she and Edith ( Photo Number101)   are twin sisters. 
This photo is being sent to Jeanne..Hugh Hermes daughter.. Mayme would have been baby Hugh's Aunt.  So a  Great Aunt to Jeanne.

  1. She looks like quite the perky woman, probably would have been a really fun friend.

  3. She was certainly well dressed. Gloves and all.
    I am anxious to find out what info you might have on those other photos.

  4. That is quite a decorated podium she is leaning on. The dress is unusual and the whole thing is quit unique.
