The Eyes Have It

What a hauntingly lovely image of a long-gone time and child.

Giant bows

Still rampant in some parts.
Back in the late 90's, we adopted two little girls from Russia. Both came dressed in the bows, which were a marvel of complex knots. Fortunately, both were old enough to untie them themselves, before we attacked them with scissors...

Am I the only one

that saw the hat as an upside down smiley face?

Anyone out there remember Little Iodine?

That giant bow is straight out of the funny pages!

Mutually exclusive

Bow or hat. I don't see how you could wear both.

[Evidently the bows migrate south. - Dave]

Society's Child

Father is probably Thomas Durant, a patent lawyer and husband of Mary. The daughter shown here would be Maxine, who was 11 years old in the 1910 Census. She will marry Lorenzo Dale Burnell, a CPA, in 1919 and move to Detroit. Maxine's brother Thomas Jr., two years her senior, appears to marry Marjorie Merriweather Post's eldest daughter in 1927. Maxine died in 1985 and is interred at Forest Hill Cemetery in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
