Indiana girls

"Aunt Edna and Eula Mae."

When a farm girl gets dressed up to have her picture taken ... or was she a city girl, and this her high school graduation photograph? If so, she would have been unusual. My grandmother, a city girl probably of about the same generation, always bragged about having graduated high school, which girls didn't necessarily do in the early part of the 20th century.

I like the little pearls around her neck. They represent glamor and wealth, can't possibly be real -- and aren't remotely needed. She is far lovelier than they are.
