Christmas in July

Looking through the pictures, I found several that were taken in the winter when the snow was on the ground.

Here is a cute one - my Aunt Leah, looking very pretty with a short haircut and new short dress sitting on the front porch next to a Christmas tree. She looks like a flapper! I wish I knew the story on this one - have no idea why there was a tree on the front porch.
And here is a cute picture of my Aunt Nelle and Nan, my mom, standing out in the snowy street in front of their house. On the back of the picture Nelle wrote a note and named the fellow who was in the background saying he just would not get out of the picture. The Pearce girls are looking very pretty.

I am certain that the young lady on the sled is Aunt Leah at a younger age. The photo was taken right in front of their home.

And here is Maggie, my grandmother, in her hooded cape, standing out in the back yard in a deep snow. My grandparents took a trip out west and were at Lake Louise in an undetermined year. This picture was from that trip. Looks cold and snowy. There were two couples - and the other fellow is the photographer. (Click pictures to enlarge)


  1. I love the sled picture - how funny - all are very nice but brrrrrrr J

  2. It is hard to believe that in those days girls went out to play in dress boots and skirts. Now days people think it is ok to wear blue jeans to church. My dad always said that blue jeans were for poor folks or country types. He never understood us buying expensive jeans to wear out for entertainment.
