I really like looking at old pictures. I don’t particularly care to own old pictures except those of my family, but I do like looking at them. (Who wants a bunch of pictures of strangers hanging around?) However, I could not resist buying this one at an estate sale this summer. The little girl is so cute. But that’s not why I bought it.
I bought it for what was written on the back, “Edna, Be sure & see the checkered dress.”
That cracks me up. How could you miss the checkered dress? I wonder what the story behind that was. Is Edna extremely un-observant? Or maybe the sender just wanted Edna to know that the child was wearing the dress Aunt Edna had sent. I don’t know. But I do know that cracks me up.
Here’s the little girl all dressed up for Halloween. (Don’t worry, I embellished a copy, the original is still intact.)
