Photo Number 158

This granny is really dressed up!  Complete with gloves.  I read where hats and gloves were all just part of good etiquette.  Hats were often changed many times a day and only beggars went bareheaded.  This granny is headed someplace important..to church..perhaps to a wedding..in the late 1940's. I love the way her clutch purse is secured under her arm.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

  1. Is it just me, or does it look like she is wearing some pretty heavy duty support hose?

  4. Those are not support hose. They are merely "flesh-colored" cloth stockings that went up above the knee and attached to a garter belt or girdle. My grandmother wore them all the time but she rolled the tops into sort of a knot. Mature women were more likely to wear them than "nylons."
