Two of my aunts, one on each end, taken probably in the 1940's. My Aunt Leah, on the left, was my favorite aunt - Aunt Nelle on the right lived in California so I never got to know her well. However, I think she would have been lots of fun! In the picture she has on hose and garters! Fun stuff!
A local family pictured with a prized teddy bear in the early 1900's. In 1902, a cartoon entitled "Drawing the Line in Mississippi" by Clifford Berryman was published in The Washington Post. This image is thought to have started the teddy bear craze in the U.S.
