My Grandmother

This was my grandmother when she was 17 years old(1930). It is rumored in our family that she learned how to play cards from one of Al Capone's "goons". She attended the Art Institute of Chicago and lived there during a time of much gangster upheaval.

Hey that's one saucy lookin' dame.

My family photo's of the same period look almost puritanical by comparison or like Bushrangers( outlaws)

My grandmother was quite the woman and a force to be reckoned with no doubt.

Your grandmother was amazing! It is so weird how distinguished most folks from that generation look in photos! My grandfather looked like a young Paul Newman. I should post a picture of him, talk about a handsome man!
