I recently bought this wonderful old photo on Etsy and have enjoyed looking at these rather determined young ladies. What's your guess? Church ladies or suffragettes? Or both? I'm guessing suffragettes and/or both. I think they may be taking a break from picketing. Wouldn't you love to know more!


  1. That is one awesome pic, Coralie. Would love to have known about these ladies. Love the era ...

  2. I think that they look like suffragettes. They have that look of determination on their faces. I love old photos too. One day I visited Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House here in Concord. There was a photo of all the suffragettes, her included. Frances Burnett, the author of the Secret Garden was in the photo too. I thought that was so interesting.

    Lovely post.


    P.S. Coralie, I love your background!

  3. Interesting photo Coralie..what stories it could tell about those lovely ladies..
    I love your background too!

  4. I love old photos and wondering about the people in them. I think that these were intelligent strong women who were church goers on Sunday and Suffragettes the rest of the week:).

    Thanks for sharing!



  5. Isn't it fun to make up stories to go with the fabulous old photographs?? Coralie, your blog is simply beautiful. I am off to read more of your posts!
