Thought it would be a fun variation on the usual fodder if I joined the Sepia Saturday webring.
Hence: this is my maternal grandmother Helen around age 13, in a Salome costume for a school drama circa 1910.
Helen's artistic side did not, unfortunately, come to fruition except as an amateur seamstress. In the last year or two, her story has been considerably enlightened by way of my discovery of my great-grandfather's diary (Helen's father David). This tells his story from birth (1863), his immigration to the US in 1884, on up through 1920, by which time he was a successful businessman in Minneapolis.
Here's Helen a few years later, affecting a liberated attitude.
And still later after she'd had three children. That's my mom looking dubious on Helen's back.
