Betty and a Friend in the Garden -- Post 309 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

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


Here is a photograph from my grandfather's photo album in the Seaver/Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:


This picture is of my mother, Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002), daughter of Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer, of the left, in the Carringer garden on Fern Street in San Diego holding hands with a friend whose identity I am unsure of.  It may be Edwina Taylor, a close friend of the Carringers.  

I think the date on this is about 1921 or 1922, judging from the size of the children (Betty would have been 2 years old in July 1921).  

I love pictures of my mother smiling!  I have no idea what the girls were looking at - probably someone distracting them enough to get the picture.

Updated 29 May:  fixed error in Betty's lifespan.  Thanks, Paul!

You have the dates of 1919-1921 on that picture of your Mom. Not sure if you are trying to say picture was taken in that two year time slot? I usually see birth and death dates listed after a name but as a two year cannot have child it must be a typo? Enjoy your columns. When the brick wall participants in todays posts get results from the suggestions given to them, it would be fun to see what they came up with.

Your mom is adorable and so is her little outfit. I don't think I've ever seen such a full, split-skirt romper on a girl during that time period. The wonderful thing about people in dated photographs is being able to use them to date undated photographs based on clothing.
