"Aunt" Edith

In my years as a child, I had many "Aunts" who were
friends of my mother. They were too close to be
called Mrs. and it wasn't proper to call them by their first name.
This is photo of "Aunt" Edith Colgrove Johnson.
She and her husband, Sidney, lived in Dalhart, TX.
What a lovely woman she was and such a joy
to visit.
I love the fancy cardboard frame which
has cacti and the silhouette of a town along the
bottom. I'm pretty sure this was taken in the '30's.

  1. Judging from the hairdo, either the 20's or the 30's.

  2. Beautiful Art Deco Frame. She has lovely finger waves! :)
