Two Little Girls in the Thirties

These two little girls all dressed in overalls and a kerchief are Carol and Joanne at a long, long ago picnic with our family which I just barely remember. Jo used to say that she remembered they forgot to bring the plates, but that Grandpa, who was a salesman for Thomas & Clark Cracker Company, made plates from cracker boxes. She was so little, but she was adamant about her memory. The picture is oil tinted - the only way you had colored photos back in the "old days". This is another picture I just love and I have it hanging here in my computer room. I miss my sister. (Click to enlarge)
