This one has got to be one of my favorites...

I understand my grandmother made her suit herself.

She was always good with a needle.

Look at her monogram...

What a gorgeous group of photographs, Dee. I was going to say that I thought your grandmother looked a little risque for the 1920s, but then I looked at other swimsuits of the time period and find that she's perfectly fashionable. Her monogram looks perfect. It's too bad the suit didn't survive.

I also like the photo of the boys with the chicken in front of them. It looks like they were performing some kind of dance or routine, maybe.... They are cute.
