(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 117: Betty in her Buggy

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

I managed to scan about 100 family photographs in the Scanfest in January, and have converted the scanned TIF files to smaller JPGs, cropped and rotated as best I can. Many of these were "new" to my digital photograph collection.

Here is a photograph from the Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

This is a picture of my mother, Betty Virginia Carringer, in her baby buggy out on a stroll, probably with her mother and father. She looks very comfortable, doesn't she? She's bundled up pretty good, but doesn't have mittens on.

This photograph was probably taken in early 1920, when Betty was between the ages of 6 months and 12 months, in San Diego.

Very cute! Cool enough for a bonnet but not so cold for mittens - in Scotland she'd have been wearing both most of the year! I've been tackling my photos too, but you are way ahead of me - I'll try to catch up :-)
