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.
|Helen is on the right.|
My great-aunt Helen Killeen Parker must have had a wonderful summer at Ocean View in Norfolk, Virginia. Her photo album is full of pictures of her and her friends enjoying the sea and sand. Based on other dated photos, the pictures were taken sometime between 1918 and 1920.
The photo is captioned “Chucks.” What does that mean? I have Googled slang, flapper slang, 1920s slang, etc. but without success. Helen used that same caption for other group photos too, so my best guess is that it means friends.
