A Picnic And A Surprise - Wordless Wednesday

Sitting Left to Right: Adolf Szerejko, Antonina (Bulak) Szerejko, Helen Bulak, Helene (Szerejko) Dingle, Christine (Szerejko) Shenette; Lying Down: Unidentified 
(Digital Image.  Photograph Privately Held By Cynthia Shenette; Photograph and Text, Copyright (c) 2012 Cynthia Shenette)  It's interesting what you see when you enlarge a photo.  This is a photo of my mom and her family on a picnic, sometime in the 1920s. When I looked at the original of this photograph I thought the material in front of where everyone is sitting was a tablecloth. When I enlarged the photo and adjusted the color I was more than a little surprised to discover the material is actually part of a woman's dress!

Kristin - LOL. I thought the same thing about my mother's sister with the horn, and you're right about the skirt!
