Even though Gill doesn’t know the names of the other children or where this photo was taken, she thought it made a good example for my Labor Day summer album. She’s right. All the children wear the bobbed hair of the 1920s and light summer garments. Her mom is one of the smaller children, being only around kindergarten age.
Gill knows the family lived in Bayside, NY, but isn’t sure if this photo was taken in her mother’s backyard or elsewhere in the neighborhood. The large lilac hedge is a clue worth researching in other family photos or those of her mother’s childhood friends.
It’s definitely a summertime shot, with the lilacs long past their bloom.
Thank you, Sandi, for sharing your picture!
