Fashion Friday





Here they are - Nan and Nelle, the two older Pearce daughters, all dressed up and standing in the street looking toward their home on Behrends Avenue in Peoria. Dear Aunt Nelle has written on the front of the picture as she did so often and pretty well nailed down the year. Both are dressed in lovely dark outfits and wearing their usual pretty hats. On the back of the photo, Nelle has explained who the fellow is in the background. Seems like they would have liked to have him out of the picture but evidently he wasn't cooperating. A nice wintry evening in Peoria. (Click to enlarge)

What a fantastic old photo! Love the coats and hats! Beautiful! Two enchanting women!!! The writing image is just as lovely ... so romantic ... nothing captures words form the heart than those taken to pen ...
Happy Friday!
