(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 167: Betty and her "Baby"

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.

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

This photograph is of my mother, Betty Carringer (1919-2002), taken in about 1922, and is in the Pentecost album.  She is cradling a doll, standing in the middle of a red berry bush patch (I think - I remember these bushes, they usually had small red mushy berries and grew prolifically).   The picture was probably taken on the Carringer property between Fern Street and 30th Street on the block north of Hawthorn Street in San Diego. 

Betty is wearing an apron over her dress.  The apron has a pocket, and an image of a girl in a bonnet running with a net.  I wonder if the apron was hand-made by one of her grandmothers.
