I’m not sure how old she is in this photo, but this is my grandmother. She was born in 1916 and grew up outside Philadephia and in New Jersey.
Sometimes I wish I had my costume reference books with me. I can’t date the picture from the clothing, because although the big collar with plaid trim is from the 20s, its quite possibly a hand-me-down. Romayne was second youngest in a family of 14!
Thanks, Mom, for finding this photo and scanning it.Posted by kuri at October 05, 2002 08:29 AM
