The woman on the left is my Aunt Florence. In the center is my maternal grandmother -Nana and on the right is my mother Mary Patricia. Aunt Florence was married to Nana's eldest child, my Uncle Joe, who died in 1945 in India. He was an Air Force Navigator and the plane crashed literally a day after the Peace Treaty in the Pacific was signed.
From other photos in the album, I gather that the car in the background was my Uncle Joe's and that had to be a big deal for everyone!
I love my mother's peepy toe shoes! a fun side of her before she was married and of course before I was born. I am pretty sure that all the clothes the women are wearing would have been made at home. Store bought was not an affordable option and both my mother and grandmother were excellent seamstresses.
