(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 250: A Teenaged Betty Carringer All Dressed Up

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

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family photograph collection passed to me by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

This is a photograph of my mother, Betty Virginia Carringer, taken in about 1935, probably by her father, outside their home at 2130 Fern Street in San Diego.  If this was taken in 1935, she would have been about age 16.  The occasion may have been an important event in her life, like a high school graduation (in June 1936), a school event, or a family event.  Note the hat, the white high heeled shoes, the longish dress and jacket.

That's such a beautiful photo.

Beautiful! A sweet sixteen! That style, with the blazer and long skirt, looks really sharp and would not be at all out of place today. I notice she has modestly downcast eyes, which is maybe a mark of her personality.

What a gorgeous photo of your mom. I love the slight smile she has on her face--a very pensive, pleasant expression. You have a massive collection of great pictures!
