Family Photographs - Post 38: Mom as a Young Lady

I'm posting old family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is one of the most precious (to me) images from my Auble/Carringer family collection:

This is a picture of my mother, Betty Virginia Carringer, as a young lady. I believe that it was taken in 1936, when she was 17, and perhaps was taken for her high school graduation. I think that the picture was taken by her father, Lyle L. Carringer, in the garden adjacent to the Carringer home at 2130 Fern Street in San Diego.

The picture was in the photo collection handed down to me by my mother starting in 1988, and is in my possession now.
