Photo Number 219

There is an undercurrent in this photo, three of the ladies have aprons on, so they must be the cooks.  The "city" gal on the end has a real attitude.  This photo really makes me wonder who is who, and who is related to who.  Grandpa seems off in his own world.  I think this is a photo from the 1940's, but I am not positive of that date.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

  1. Good Morning Connie, This photo is so reminiscent of our old family photos. I had one aunt who always way overdressed for every occasion and never "got her hands dirty!"

  2. Looks like a family reunion - I like how the older man in the left-middle back appears to be either "having words" or more likely just hard of hearing and saying, "What?"

    The "city gal" is beautiful and her hair is really nice as is the dress. The other two younger girls are nicely dressed too -

    I wonder if she was embarassed by the plain/fruppiness of her spinster aunts or something. Maybe half the family were "hillbillies" at least in her mind.

  3. Yes it is a fine picture. You couldn't manage to pose them like that if you tried.

  4. The man next to the "city girl" really has a hold on her. :) I think the younger gal in the apron is City Girl's sister. And they are having words and "Dad" is holding City Girl back...

  5. Makes you wonder if a fight broke out right after this shot, ha ha.

  8. There is a real story here -- if only we could discover what it is/was. It's hard to tell if City Girl is talking to the younger man in back beside "Grampa" or to the lady in front with the checker-y apron. Wouldn't it be fun if someone in the photograph were still alive, found it, and told us the story?!
