Hennery Handbag

The wire-cage purse on the floor would sure make my job of gathering eggs from the henhouse a lot more fun!

The one on the *right*

The period photo from her junior college yearbook clears things up (then 1329 Wynnton Drive, Columbus GA, for the curious):

Putt it out

The ashtray on the right might suggest a golf course clubhouse for a location.

Bride to Be?

Photo perhaps from the warmer months of '53, if she was wed Feb. 11, 1954:

From Columbus To Orlando

Louise Scarborough Mullin was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harrison Palmer Mullin of Columbus, Georgia. Numerous stories about her childhood appeared in the local newspaper, for example, “Little Louise Mullin Celebrates Her Seventh Birthday Entertaining Her Friends At ‘Doll Wedding‘” (Columbus, October 6, 1938). Her February 1954 wedding to David Yergey, an Army Officer, was described in a very lengthy newspaper article. She and her husband eventually relocated to Orlando, Florida. Her obituary, September 13, 2015, notes her 20 years of activity with the Junior League of Orlando.

White Shoes and Bags

In addition to Louise’s name, we know this shot was taken between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
