About to go for a swim perhaps, three friends of my grandmother's strike a pose for her camera. Click to see these gals in greater detail.
M Y C O L L E C T I O N — Over at This and That with Artichoke Annie, Annie has published a photo of her mother and three friends taken circa 1915. It reminded me of this photo my grandmother shot around that time of three of her friends. I'm guessing 1920, so it's a bit early for "flappers" but they look like the type of fun-loving gals that would have been Charleston-ing their nights away, lol. This is taken in Stony Creek, CT, right next to the water, and that gorgeous granite fountain behind them is still there right in the middle of the hamlet. This is the same little area of town where I had my art show last year. The Thimble Islands are off the coast, and count among their summer residents Jane Pauley and her husband Garry Trudeau, of Doonesbury fame.
