Well to do, but ...

As someone pointed out on the previous photo, there isn't a hand-me-down in sight, but at least mom and son aren't afraid to wear the same outfit they did before. This may indicate that back in the day, even among the well to do, there wasn't a closet full of clothes to wear. Glad to see everyone is smiling now!

[Um, it's the "same outfit" because both pictures were taken at the same time. - Dave]
