Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

 

This photograph features Miss Lois Montgomery at about age 13. The photo is set into the mount and sealed. Take a look at that fascinating hat! I haven’t seen anything quite like it before. Young Lois is wearing a shirt and tie look, dating this to about 1915-1920 by my best guess. I do not have a location for the photo. The card itself is just slightly wider than a CdV, so it’s about 2.5″ by 3.5″.

  1. That is one strange hat..perhaps an old favorite Aunt gave it to her and she was obligated to have her photo taken in it. It doesn’t quite “go” with her blouse and tie:)

    It almost looks like braided fabric, perhaps with a wire to make it rigid?
