1930s nun and family photos

Flattr this!

Here are some album pictures from the 1930s… it’s a mix of family photos, children, and Catholic nuns. It looks like dress and hat styles varied, and the distinctive mark was the short waved hair and side part on the women. I think this family was pretty middle class, and since this was during the Great Depression in the Midwest, they were probably not the most fashionable… so these pics are probably fairly representative as to how “normal” folk dressed in the 30s.

About The Author

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.
