Here is a picture of two little sisters - Nan and Nelle - all dressed up and standing in front of a stone lion someplace in Peoria, Illinois, in the early 1900's.
They are looking very somber - maybe their poor little feet hurt in those high button shoes! Such cute coats and hats - and my Mom has lost one of the buttons from her coat. It looks like she has some pretty mittens on, also. Hope the button is in her pocket! Another picture that I love. (Click to enlarge)
