Wool swimsuits? Betty Maddux, her brother Bill and cousin, wearing their stylish bathing suits, in San Antonio TX one hot summer. Bathing suits in that era were made from wool. Can you imagine??? Don't you love the cowboy boots they are wearing to compliment the bathing suits?
Betty Louise Maddux had her pic taken in a 'traveling goat cart'. She was under two years old in the picture, taken in 1926. She and her family lived in Kansas City MO at the time so I suspect that is where the picture was taken. When I asked my grandson if he wanted to see a picture of Betty (his great grandmother) in a goat cart, he was surprised when he saw the picture because he thought I said 'go cart'. He didn't expect a GOAT.
I believe this photo is of Margaret Greene, of the Greene family of Salem MO, circa 1910. It was among the photos from my grandmother's estate and is identified as Margaret Greene.
I believe this is a photo of Robert Russell Greene, judging from the hairstyle, taken in the 1890's in Salem MO. He was a jewelry store owner and his store is on the historic building tour in Salem. He was the brother of my great-grandfather. I would love to hear from any people related to Robert.
Vince Maddux, third from right, drove a bus for Kansas City. He was shot in a robbery of the bus terminal, ending his career as a driver. While he survived the attack, he was left with vision impairment. The uniforms of that era are quite impressive.

My mother in law, born in 1916, was next to this woman, probably her mother, at the beach in New Jersey when this photo was taken.
