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.

altitude or brightness that made shading the eyes desirable (or protecting one's skin, for the women).

i wonder if that was a special car that "lived" at glen cove where one could take a picture for one's memory book.
