Feeding the Chickens

(Original Image and Text, Copyright (c) 2011 Cynthia ShenetteThis photo of my grandmother, Antonina (Bulak) Szerejko, was probably taken in the late 1910s.  I love the dichotomy between my grandmother's outfit and the task at hand.  I know I always wear my white dress, white shoes, and pearls when I go out to feed the chickens.  Don't you?

You are right, ladies! I will say, the white shoes are what concerned me the most...

It's amazing that she wore these clothes--In the era before electric washing machines it was so difficult to do laundry.
