This photo was sent to me by a friend named Barb, who wrote:
About the photo, the shirt has mutton sleeves and tiny tucks
down the front. Gram is wearing a gold locket and a long gold chain to
the watch in a pocket. If you look closely to the right, you can see that there is
as double layer to the skirt, I imagine so that when she stands you
are not aware of the pants, the skirt flaps would fall in front. She
has her heels well down and in the old fashioned way, legs forward.
The hat is a riot.
If you have additional information about Donkey Rides up Pikes
Peak at the turn of the century, send the information to Barb.
