She is very pretty!  It looks like she might be wearing an apron.

    Looking at FindAGrave records - I see a Clara Vogt Grotnes and a Pearl Sylvina Quam Grotnes. Possible leads/links to Virginia Vogt and Pearl "the undressed".

    1. They died within 11 days of each other. I wonder where Len is buried. Island Lake is not too far from me, about 25 miles. :)

  4. These are fun! The first could be from a Raymond Chandler novel. She looks like a quiet waitress, but she has a whole other life going on.
