My Great Grandmother VanGilder, all of her sisters and even a couple of articles about her daughter, my Grandmother Hughes, were hiding there. I also found the newspaper article above which explains the photo postcard of my bathing beauty.

Fabulous Post and mahvalous photo!ReplyDelete
I certainly would have loved to know Bobs! She looks like she was a hoot! What spirit and charisma she must have had! I love EVERYTHING about this postcard.. from her stockings to her smile! How funny! I actually fell on you blog randomly when looking for vintage 'bathing beauty' images.. but it looks like we have bunches of the same bloggy friends:) I love raeding Geneablogs!ReplyDelete
Linda, you have such cool stuff on your family. Her picture makes me want a martini and I don't even drink martinis.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see your garden pictures you hard working lady. My yard is luck if it gets watered some times.
OMG! What a great photo! May Bobs live on in history!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your photo in the COG!
Luv the photo AND the newspaper clipping you found that goes with it! Such a thrill to make those connections . . .ReplyDelete
Great picture, from the tigerskin rug to the smile
on Bobs' face!
