Orange Picking.


This is my latest LO. This is Bessie and Tom, with Linda and Dorothy and the baby refered to on the postcard, is Betty, their little sister. It is likely that Bessie's sister, Mary, was looking after her.
The original photo was the picture on the postcard, which I scanned and then used the two different copies for the LO.

The family lived in Georgia in 1915 and I think that it may have been a working holiday near by (or posibly Florida) just like the Hop Pickers in Kent.
Thanks for looking
Take Care xx

How amazing - and to have postcards! A huge argument for owning a scanner! Lovely LO too Angie, am jealous of your ownership of so much of your heritage!
