Traces Posted January 9 Share Posted January 9 Traces of Texas reader Marilyn Vaughan kindly sent in this really fun photo. Says Marilyn: "In 1911, our grandmother, Pearl Jarrott, traveled with friends from Teague to Galveston, where they cavorted for the camera in what must have felt like wild abandon to these decorous and well-educated young ladies. Pearl (second from right, on log) was 19 years old. We delight in this photo because it departs from the somber lineup typical of the time. Pearl wrote "The Show" across the bottom of the picture." I agree with Marilyn. It's so nice to see a photo like this in which people are actually expressing joy and abandon because it shows that they were really just like us. I think our view of them is colored by the fact that they are always reserved and proper in the photos of that time. But here they are, just being silly young ladies. Awesome. Thank you, Marilyn. Really great 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
