My father's mother died years before I was born so I only have these copies of some very cool pictures. All are marked 1924. The details are amazing. Can you imagine going to a party or carnival and dressing up for pictures? Completely fun.

    She must have tried every backdrop that they had in the studio! The "man in the moon" backdrops have a strong collector following.

    She presents an "I'm in charge"/ self reliant look in the first pose-- what do you know about her?

    She looks to have been a very interesting person!

    Thank you all for the loves. I am going to ask around if anyone has additional pictures. She obviously liked to be photographed and was very stylish.

    First is a nice studio portrait. the other 3 of her dressed in western garb remind me of the old carnivals where they had booths where you could dress up in your favorite western garbs and pose for photos which they sometimes sepia toned. I even went to one of them when young.

    You are still young! Believe that is exactly where she was.
