Wordless Wednesday: Mermaids


Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

Yet another goodie from my great-aunt Helen Killeen Parker’s photo album from 1918-20.  She must have had quite a summer at Ocean View in Virginia because she has pages dedicated to her friends at the beach.

    1. Yes, they are adorable, but most of them don't look like they offered much protection if you were trying to keep your hair from getting wet.

  3. Wouldn't they be shocked if they saw what people wear to the beach now??
