Sweaty Sweaters

Such a femine little outfit. Floral embroidery and doo-dads all over the place. Knitted head thingy that isn't even covering her ears. Oven mitts fit for an Arctic expedition, despite it being late August. Is it the gal's version of Special-Ed Mittens? You got it Jack!

See, she wanders around the neighborhood with her purse crammed with bottle caps, old leaves and maybe I think a dead turtle, but her fingers are safe from that damn chewing habit of hers. I mean she's gnawed her nails down to the first knuckle.

Really. Because I said so.

Monarch Girls' Hand Knit Styles, 1940's.

Here's a photo from my collection of people I don't know.

These girls get all done up and put on their best duds for a photo. They get their hair all frizzed special and everything.

I'd wondered for years why the chick on the right put on the sweater with the neck all stretched out. From the size of these girls' heads I'd say probably all of her sweaters look like that. Even the v-necks.

She kind of looks like she'd rather be somewhere else anyhow.

Big-Headed Girls, 1940's.

It looks like they just had a fight before the picture was snapped... or not so much as a fight as a woman's catty conversation:
Left Girl: I see you finally made it sleepy head.
Right Girl: Really Celia, let's not get into this again. Let's just get this picture taken, please?
LG: You're so right.....Gracious... Did you lose your foundation garment to the "War Effort" again, Lilly?
Phtographer: Ladies if you could...1,2 ,3...
RG thinks to herself as picture is taken "My only comfort is hopefully you'll die first"


Seriously, that is how I SO think it went.

I kinda get the feeling that RG got all the attention while LG was the "responsible" older sister.

I think they traveled on the short bus to school!

Dunno. I kinda get the feeling these girls followed the short bus to school.

The woman with the hood looks like she's wearing boxing gloves. She's probably the type who would sucker-punch you when you were looking the other way.

Why didn't post the big, full colored reproduction of the bottom photo that you painted? Or are you tired of looking at it hanging on your wall every damn day for years?

Mebbe I didn't want to.

So there!
