Vintage Photo Friday
Time for winter! Get out your warm coats, just like Great Grandma Vera, above! This is my Dad's paternal grandmother, probably in Russia, wearing a fur coat for winter. I'm not sure of the year, maybe around 1910, or so. Grandma Vera migrated to Chicago after her son, my Grandfather Lawrence moved here. I'm sure she needed those warm coats for the harsh Chicago winters. I am told that Grandma Vera was a very strong woman, decisive and smart.
Here in Los Angeles warm coats are rarely needed. I'd be happy if the temperature reached 65 degrees F., so I could pull out a few sweaters.
Have a wonderful, cool weekend.
