Rachel Easingwood's 10th birthday, 1908 NY state. All of those cute girls in pretty dresses (and bows in their hair).

A truly sweet treasure of a photo! Love their outfits and different hairstyles! Most are very serious, but girl second from left is almost in a smile!

Brittany Christenson What do you know about the Birthday part? Michael says he misses her! Were you able to know her before she passed! That is wonderful, but sometimes rare to get to know Great Grands!

I didn't ever know her... she died before I was born. I know that at her birthday party was a doctor's little girl and I believe their family had the camera. They got dressed up for the occasion as that was a big deal then. Michael Hanagan correct me if I messed any of that up.

My Mom was born in 1909 and I have pics of her and her sisters in the very frilly dresses and big hair bows! I am 72 and not Tech Savvy, so I don't post pics! The home looks like a very lovely one! The curtains in the window are so nice, Lace!

GayGay (that's what we called her thanks to your mom) is second from the left in this photo. Her father, Arthur Laverick Easingwood, was an architect and the Clinton town hall is one of his masterpieces. Her best friend was Mary Dudley, who is standing just to the right of the little girl in the chair holding onto the arm of the chair. Mary Dudley's father was a physician. Clinton was and is a small town. The Dudley's had a little money, and so the camera was likely his. GayGay used to tell us about how it was fun going to Mary's house and getting the chance to turn on the electric lights. Oh, and this is The Village of Clinton, New York.

You were so blessed to get to know her before she passed Michael! I am almost 73 and I knew my Grandmother! She had extremely long hair like crystal Gayle, she could sit on it! Her major claim to fame was shooting rabid Mountain lion, through the door of their wood frame home, on the Idaho Prarie while Grandpa was away working with the railroad!

Lovely photo. Bows in the hair must have lasted a long time or maybe they were in and out again until the 1940's when I was a little girl and almost all the photos I was in there it was the bow in my hair. I do remember the lovely colors.

This is my Grandmother May Slater 8 years old (standing girl) in 1904 with her brother Clifford and 2 cousins. Country kids in New Brunswick Canada with lovely bows in the girls' hair. I knew my grandmother very well. She died at age 91.

For my mother-in-law's 10th birthday she got a team of horses to use to work in the fields. She thought that was a pretty special gift.

Why can't I find dresses like this for my daughter. I love the Edwardian clothing, I think it's one of my favorite time periods for clothing. Very proper yet very wearable.

You can find it in antique stores. The problem is that the fabric is so delicate, that many of these lace and lawn dresses shred very easily. The couple I have been able to get my hands on haven't held up very well, but they are great in pictures!

I've always loved that period, too. There are some designers of girls dresses in white and off white cotton, etc, that I found on the internet a few years ago.

For those who are wondering... the girl second from the left (the one who is smiling) is my great-grandmother. Her name was Rachel Easingwood. As to why her friends look so glum for being at a birthday party, some guesses: 1) her birthday was in the summer, and their clothing very well may have been hot and itchy (it was "picture taking" clothing and was probably more for looks than comfort!) 2) asking any group of kids to sit still for a long period of time would make them grumpy! You can tell this is a prolonged-exposure photograph because some of the girls are a little blurry. Just my thoughts. :)

It was not normal for people to smile for photos back then. I have heard it is because it is easiest to hold still for a long exposure when holding a blank expression.

Bows in the hair has always been popular. I SO wish the morals most kids had back then were more common in kids today. I was born in 1946, and would not trade even if I could, growing up in that time period. It was the greatest experience ever. I have been told so many times by younger people, even teens and kids, that they envy the fact I grew up in the most wonderful time to be a kid, ever. I am truely blessed. I simply love the pictures you share with us. It made me get out my Momma's sc*** books.
