Other stash items included in
the packs.

Well I think I understand Steampunk now.
Thanks to all the artist that made me so happy.
Hope I did not get anything mixed up.
I misplaced one of the names and there was nothing on the back but I think I have them all lined up now.
Hope I did not get the names and cards mixed up.

Sepia Saturday
Connections to the theater

Well I have to stretch my photo to comply with theater but I can do that.

This photo appeared in our local newspaper in 1920
It is the graduating class of a private girl's school in my town.

I have no idea who these young women are.
They were named but I did not know any of them or their families.
Only 4?
Well yes. A private all girl's school in 1920.
Very expensive and exclusive.
The high school is still in operation and is coed now and is still very expensive.
I love the dresses and look at the shoes.
Two of the girls have on white leather high top shoes with laces.
Daintily showing their diplomas.
A good photographer and yes a little showwomanship.
Now just down the road from this school was an all girl's private college.
These schools were owned by the same religious congregation. 
One of the girls, or maybe all, earned a scholarship to the college.
Did they go?
Who knows.
It makes for a good piece of theater.

Go here for more Sepia Saturday.

Oh your win is wonderful. Each selection is a work of art. How will you display them? In a grouping? Just lovely.

I noticed that gals' shoes right away. Very interesting that some of those very same fashions have come around again...the high top shoes with a dress for example.

I’m not sure I’d have liked to be a pupil in a school with so few others. It must have seemed more like an exclusive club at times. Like Bob, I wonder whether they made anything of themselves.

Ann said...

you are lucky to have chefs in your family.Guess you always get treats.

Lightverse said...

I like the first section of this post, for the creative artwork! As for the photo for Sepia Saturday, it is definitely theater. I bet there is a story in and from each of those girls. Just think of the theatrical possibilities! ☼

Christine H. said...

What wonderful and creative cards. I love the picture of the girls, and I can't help but wonder where their lives took them.

Mina said...
