(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: The Stetson Sisters, California, about 1925-1930

Geraldine, Winifred & Barbara Stetson, daughters of Penneman H Stetson and Genevieve Brown (my grandmother Ruby's sister). The girls were my mother's first cousins.  

This photo taken somewhere in California about 1925-1930, just a few years before their parents both died of tuberculosis. The girls were adopted by Walter & Pearl (Stetson) Simpson, an aunt and uncle.  

One of my favorite family photos.

Have a great day!
