1930s family and children photos

Here are some family and children photos from around 1938 (according to the date on the pics)…. the cute white pressed collars and simple clothing! It’s interesting to see the women wearing cloche-like turbans, showing that the fashion changes from the 1920s fashions were more gradual than merely stopping in 1929 (atleast for everyone but the very rich, and since this family was in the midwest during the Great Depression, fashion changes probably took a little longer).

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
