    Thanks everyone for dropping by. I’m glad you enjoyed the photo. I just love these historical pics.

    Please stop by in the coming weeks when I’ll begin posting photos from my own collection!

    Unfortunately, I don’t have any information on this young lady. I wish I knew more about her. If I’m able to track anything down, though, I’ll be sure to post what I find.

    Change her clothing and she could have gone to school with me.
