Miscellaneous snaps from the family shoebox, Part 4

And here's the final batch of interesting (but non-essential) snapshots that I'm sharing for posterity before they head off (probably) to The Great Unknown. Baby steps in sorting and pruning and sorting and pruning and...

#15: Dick & Dicky Weiss, 1943. I have no idea who these people are or how they knew the family. This print was made by RENÉ S. LUND of Chicago.

#16: Mina Pregg. A University of Delaware classmate of my grandmother, Helen Chandler Adams Ingham. Circa 1940.

#17: Jane King. Another classmate. She has been mentioned previously in this short series. And she's about to come up again...

#18: Jane King's cottage, June 1940. There's a lot of great detail if you zoom in on in this four-inch-wide snapshot, which wasn't printed until a year later, in June 1941, at Kirstein's Photo Service (unless the year is wrong in the provided caption and it was printed the same month in which it was taken).

Here's a closer look at the gang in the above photo.

#19: Mildred Griffith. University of Delaware student. Note the "Welcome to Germany" poster on the wall.

  1. I can't get a female re-boot of Reservoir Dogs out of my head with the group shot :)
