Photo Number 156

I call this one..outside of Ma Morgans.   Sometimes you cannot see the forest for the trees. Anyway..back to the hats..these are Cloche hats..they were popular from 1908 to 1933.  Cloche is a French word for bell.  A proper Cloche hat covered the neck in the back and came to the eyebrows in the front.  I am not certain what to date this photo at..1930?

Ma Morgan's House 
Now that I have discovered this is in the background of several other old photos..If we ever locate the Morgan Family..I have a bunch more photos for them. They are not marked with names..just the same house. This house has been speaking to me all this time..I am paying attention now.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again.:)
Update: Kathy and Abra think that the first photo is from the 1920's..thanks gals for your input!


  1. I love these flapperish ladies. I am thinking roaring twenties. Now, to figure out how they tie into the Morgan family. I will continue to try to find descendants for this family. I think we will solve this puzzle eventually! ~Abra

  2. I would definitely say the first photo is 1920s rather than '30s (expert that I am!)

  3. My name is Carrie Morgan, I am 30yrs. old and live in London, KY. I have recently began researching my ancestors and in hopes of finding photos of my gg, ggg, and gggg grandparents I stumbled accross this website. Not sure if I am in relation to the people in the photo or could be of any help to you?????

  4. I'd say the snap with the two females and a baby was taken closer to 1925.
