My grandmother Fannie’s Fan
Grandmother Fannie’s Fan today.
Only the skeleton remains. It used to be covered with gossamer thin white material with little sparkling threads, like the fan below. All rotted away now.
The fan once looked similar to this one. Click photo to see another fan.
I found this page with a short modern history of fans and the language of fans –
Fannie Turner before marriage – 1909.
I wonder if she carried the fan when she was married.
