Wonder Where They Were Going

Winter coats with fur collars must have been the fashion in this picture that was taken sometime in the very early 1930's. Posing here are Ray's Grandma Barney, two of her daughters, Ruby and Ethel, and her daughter-in-law Clemie, Ray's mother. Ray is standing right by his mom and his cousin Bill is to the left. I assume the little girl in that row is Ruby's child and that Ethel may be holding her youngest son, Henry, or someone else's little one. Now for the lady in the apron - I don't know who she is. There was an Uncle Charlie that I never met and maybe that was his wife. I am thinking they might have all gone to her house for lunch and were leaving to go back to Chillicothe. It was obvious that she was not cold - she probably had been over a hot cookstove all day. I look at these old photos and wonder what the circumstances were when they were taken. Such fun to look at and think about. (Click to enlarge)

  1. Isn't that the truth Carol. Sometimes at Christmas I just go outside and stand with no thought of a coat because it gets so very hot in the kitchen with people and cooking. Just a little frest air helps the cook.
