This picture was loaned to me by my friend Ludean.
It brings back old memories. Let's count a few.
Note the house foundation. I remember as a kid crawling under those houses with piers but no underpinning. It was cool and fun. Now it gives me the shivers to think of going under there with all the spiders and other things that might be there.
Note the bobbie sox with the dress shoes. I can't tell whether the shoes were high heels or not but the toe was definitely open and the strap showed fashion flair.
The hem length was a definite each year. If the style changed the mother had to work on the hem. Let it out or take it up. Fashion absolutely dictated year after year what the length would be. During war years the skirts were shorter, possibly to save money on material??
The big sister has something in her hands and I'm betting it was a Bible and they were on their way to church. You dressed up to go to church.
The sisters are Ludean and Bobbie. Bobbie looks especially proud to be with her big sister. And I'd be willing to bet that big sister teased and tormented little Bobbie but would murder anyone else who tried to mistreat her in any way!! That is based on my relationship with my own sister.
She was horrible to me but would beat up anyone else who treated me badly!! Come to think of it I'll bet my big sister made me go under that spidery house!!
Thanks for the picture, Ludean...................................................
