On Gault Street 2
Take a look at the second picture in the column. This is something I've seen before. A girl who isn't yet a full grown adult, but is also well beyond small child, wearing ringlets or the big hair bows, most often associated with little girls. Is it me, or do others find it a bit perverse. It doesn't help, that she looks like she might be pregnant.
Alright then, captions from top to bottom. "Oscar's Mother second from right and her 3 cousins (sisters and brother) from Ada, Ohio." A bit of confusion? Siblings or cousins? "Steve, Marion, Breece, Marie, Eva, J.J., Dalton & Otis (rear)" More strange names. "Millie's side door. Snow on ground." Well, every collection has a few dull photos. "Forrestine, Mrs. Moehl, Billy Moehl, Arlene Moehl, & their cousin."
"(Eva wrote this) Eva, Dalton, Laura, and Evealie with the youngest of all who is Mamma." As I noted in the last post, all the captions are written in the same hand, and now we know it's Eva. "Oscar's Mother, Columbus."
