My great grandmother at age 19. This photo is stamped ‘Jan 20 1929’ while below is hand written ‘I was 19 years old’ ‘grand(sic?)’.
I rarely scan the back of photos. Obviously, they are blank most of the time but I loved that this one included a very specific date. Imagine Caroline in her house at 1015 N Madison bundling up for the Topeka winter and heading to a photo studio. Perhaps this is a school photo? For a church directory? Maybe my grandmother has an answer…
Photo from a family collection.
