What did young women do for leisure a hundred years ago? My grandmother and her friends apparently liked to pose by automobiles and have their picture taken. Once, however, they decided a change of pace was in order and went to the lake at the fairgrounds. My grandmother is in photo 1) seated in the car; 2) standing in front on the car; 3) standing in the middle with the hat; and 4) third from right. Decked in their Sunday hats, it looks like some of these gals could be going to a royal wedding rather than spending a day of leisure posing for photographs! I believe these photos were taken sometime between 1910 and 1913.

    I think lots of women enjoy this activity still today. Although the dress is much shorter!

    Thanks for your comment, vintagemad. You're right, many women do like to "hang out" with friends and I'm very glad the dress is much shorter today!
