Just why were my Grandma Ingrid (second from the left), three of her sisters, and a friend, sitting there having their picture taken? And who took the picture?
Here's a zoomed in view of these darling girls.
This is what my Grandma Ingrid wrote under the photo in her Book of Remembrance.
In 1926 my Grandma Ingrid and her three sisters in this photo would have been the following ages:From left to right a friendAnnabelle McKendrick, MyselfIda, Ruby and Edith. Takenby our home on Grand AveSalt Lake City, Utahabout 1926
Ingrid - about 13 years old
Ida - about 10 years old
Ruby - about 6 years old
Edith - about 10 years old
Ida and Edith were twins. Did you notice how they were dressed alike? Well, except for the shoes. And I like how little Ruby is sitting there with her arms folded. And notice how Annabelle, Ingrid's friend, has her arm around Ingrid? Annabelle seems to be holding something in her lap too. I wonder what it is.
Don't these girls look happy…just sitting around…on a shed?
Thanks for reading!
