(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 219: Aunt Gerry in 1950

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!).    

Here is a photograph from the Geraldine (Seaver) Remley family collection handed down from my Aunt Gerry in 2007
 after her passing. 

This photograph is of Geraldine Seaver (1917-2007), my father's youngest sibling, and was taken in about 1950.  I don't know the setting or the occasion - it may be the home of one of her siblings in or near Leominster, Massachusetts.  Aunt Gerry is wearing a summer dress and comfortable shoes.

Isn't she beautiful?  Aunt Gerry was a very special person to everyone in the Seaver family - at this time she was the maiden aunt who doted on every niece and nephew, and there were a bunch of them.

Gerry is indeed a very pretty lady, Randy. I like the way her dress is blowing in the wind - those were the days when ladies' petticoats rustled and "swished". Nowadays, when dressed up we're so covered in man-made fibres that we "spark" :-) Jo
