I've been going through Grandma's pictures this past week pulling the ones I want to use for the memorial this coming Saturday. I've managed to find a few gems among the pictures. First, I found this beautiful portrait of Grandma from what I am guessing was her twenties. I say guessing because nothing was sorted or labeled. My Grandma was METICULOUS about everything, everything except photos it seems. I guess everyone is allowed a junk drawer or closet and hers was the photo box.
I don't know anything about this photo. I don't know why it was taken or even when. But it's just striking.
Second, I found her wedding dress receipt. In 1956, her dress cost $74.50. In case your curious here is a picture of her wedding dress. When I got married 10 years ago my veil cost more than her entire bill.
