One Hundred Years of Spunky Women































So my great great grandmother Emma is the first lady shown, her daughter Jennie is the next, her daughter Shirley is the next, her daughter Mary (Mariah) is next, her daughter Sarah (ME) is next. So 1905, 1930, 1950, 1970, 1994, and then finally a five generation photo of us all in 1977. Note how every photo typifies the time period. It's inspiring to look back and appreciate all these women. Each picture was taken prior to having a family and children, and yet soon each woman would be a mother, all having the next generation at age 19 - 21 or so. Click on photos to enlarge.
(OH, actually the five generation pic is my baby sister Miriam in 1982)

Sarah, I'm just getting caught up. This is such a neat collection, like you said, each photo representative of the phototechnology of the time. Is that your high school grad picture? Or was it taken at PNWCA? What fun to see the thread of family in all of you. Love the bow on great great (?) grandma.
