Photograph Showcase: By the Cash Register

At one time, my great grandparents owned a restaurant called The Coffee Cup.  It was located somewhere in California.  A few years later my great grandmother worked as a waitress in a restaurant in Washington State near Aberdeen.  I’m not sure which restaurant this photo was taken in.  I have a feeling it might be The Coffee Cup since she is standing with the register open in such a casual manner while her photo is taken.  I love the detail on the hem of her apron.  I imagine it was difficult to keep her clothing so white.

  1. It’s a wonderful photo of her!


  2. Great photo – wonderful detail on everything. Very special.


  3. She looks so content and happy…and pretty! Love how her uniform looks. And you’re right, how did they keep a totally white uniform like that, white?


  4. I love how she seems to really stand out from the background! Great photo!
