Sepia Saturday: Marion "Murnie" Chapin Balding, 1929

I'm not even close to on point with this week's theme.

But I am fascinated by this photo of my grand-aunt Murnie on 12 Aug 1929. She was 17.

I wish I knew who the other folks are. Aunt Murnie is sitting in the back seat, closest to the front of the photo.

I guess the altitude made it cool enough for everyone to be wearing a hat.


This is a Sepia Saturday post. Head over there for more really cool photos.

This is too funny! I have a family photo in the same car and location, but the date on mine is July 24, 1928. I posted it on my blog here: http://2338wwashingtonblvd.blogspot.com/2010/10/rite-of-passage.html

So there will be many more around...
Nevertheless, great picture and I also wonder about the make.
