  1. Ron, I think they would have dressed up more for Sunday – stockings, fancier shoes, dresses. I do wonder who’s car that was and who got to ride in the rumble seat!

    Pauleen, I thought so too.

  2. It must have been a windy day. I love the way the wind is blowing the ladies’ skirts.

  3. You have such a beautiful family.

    You know, one of the things you do here, that I particularly love, is show how Black families lived at a time when they were largely invisible in the public media, except when touched by pathology. You show what was real for us, the rest of the story, the moments. Thank you.

    1. You are making my day, Angella. I’m glad my family took so many photographs so I can share them. And learn from them.

  4. I love how Angella put things. She is absolutely right. Your pictures capture the real moments that were shared among Black families. And you have so many amazing photographs. Thank you so much for sharing them with us.
