What a lovely photo of my Grandma with her mother! Grandma Deane was about seven weeks shy of turning 14 when this photo was taken on 7 May 1946. Great-grandma Duval was a month away from turning 33.
I love the detail on the collar of Great-grandma Duval’s blouse. I’m surprised she is not wearing a pin. She loved pins. Grandma Deane, however, is wearing a pin which was a bit unusual for her. I’m guessing it was her mother’s pin. It’s one I have not seen before.
In 1946, the Duval family was living in Spokane, Washington on Walton. That home was white, but I don’t recognize the screen door in this photo. I wonder if this was the front door before their remodeling project that added the photo studio? Or maybe I have forgotten what the kitchen door looked like? I hope not . . .
I wonder where they were headed off to all dressed up?
Happy Friday, I hope you will digitize and share a family photo this weekend!! xoxo
