I don’t know who George Dooley and Karen (8 months) are, but it’s a nice photo that someone might recognize. It was in my Aunt Barb Davis’ album. Taken during WWII or shortly thereafter. Maybe in the Los Angeles CA area.
Julia Bressler is my great-grandmother. I’m guessing that Clara Ellis was a friend, perhaps from church. I never heard of Clara, but I love this photo. I like the similarity of their pose, their hands, and the fabric print of their dresses. They are wearing lace-up shoes with low heels. From the look of Clara’s ankles, her feet hurt. Julia was born in 1859; she’s 86 in this photo. February 1945. Probably Wayne, Nebraska.
