Twenties Fashion

This photo is two by three inches so it doesn't enlarge well.
It is a photo of Miss Violet Thompson from Rolla, KS. on her
twenty-first birthday, sometime in the 1920's.
It was in my mother's photos and she took care
of Miss Thompson from August 11th to August 26th
as a private duty nurse.
Yes, they used to have a single nurse go to a patient's
home and care for them.
Today we have home nursing care and I don't know
if just one person is assigned or it's several.
I believe that when my mother did it,
the nurse actually stayed in the patient's home.
I wish all the photos I have from her collection
were so carefully detailed on the back!
