Betty and Emily Carringer in About 1929-- Post 656 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

 I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is one of my favorite photographs:

This photograph is of my mother, Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002) and her mother, my grandmother, Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer (1899-1977).  The photo was taken in about 1929, perhaps when my mother graduated from elementary school.  The photo offers no idea of the setting, but it had to be in San Diego, perhaps in their home at 2130 Fern Street.  Or it may be a professional photograph for a birthday or the Carringer's 10th wedding anniversary in 1928.

These are two of the three special women in my life.  My grandmother was my caregiver from 1944 to 1946 while my mother was working and my father was in the U.S. Navy.  They were both saints.

This photo has been colorized and enhanced using the MyHeritage photo tools.  I'm not sure that the colors of the clothes are accurate.
