My mom, Nan, and her mom, Maggie, at the cottage wearing what I think is called a dustcap. I remember Grandma wearing one when she would be cleaning. I continue to be amazed when I see my grandmother in this and other pictures when she was young. I think she was very pretty and I remember her always as so much older.
Love this picture of my mother with her coy smile. And isn't that an adorable hat?
Little Nan and her big sister, Nelle, in matching outfits with cute little hats featuring a trim of some kind under the brim. Neither girl is looking too thrilled about having their picture taken. I wonder where it was taken in Peoria - there is a big concrete lion behind them.
Probably in the 40's - my Aunt Della, wife of my Uncle Harry, and my Aunt Leah. They both have pretty hats - Del's is frilly and Leah's more tailored to match her outfit. This probably was taken in California. Will post some more hats sometime next week. Hope you enjoy looking at them.
