Cute Overload!

Thanks, Joe! You're always so helpful. Do you know the location of Miss Hoover as she walked her pet pig in the other photo? People are curious about the house in the background.

And both pictures have been added to Cute Overload:

Lois Hoover Bullis

This Lois Hoover is the one who married William Bullis, the founder of the Bullis School. My first cousin is married to William and Lois's son. He later was the headmaster at the school. The family is familiar with the photo.

I wonder...

if this is the same Lois Hoover who went on to marry William Bullis and founded the Bullis School in Washington.
