Read about this series of posts, regarding items in a box originally owned by Belle (Lamunion) Fellows Tinker here. The cast of characters is located here. And, there is an accounting of people about whom I have little information here.
The numbering of these posts had been modified to signify that I am posting items from my archival book three, a three precedes the item number.
I am fascinated by this photo, which shoes three women in interesting outfits. Papa says that is no ordinary wagon. I see buckets, and wonder if the ladies were going to pick berries.
Please take the time to enlarge this one and check out the haystacks in the field. Also quite interesting, the outfit worn by the woman on the left.
Looks like a split skirt of sorts to me. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen one in such an early photo.
