Old Pictures of Nuns

Old Pictures of Nuns

Flattr this!

Here are 8 pictures of nuns, from approximately the 1930s, and probably from the Carondelet St. Louis Missouri area.

These seem relatively candid- in one picture the nuns are eating bread or something, with silly expressions, and in another they’re posed with a dog. It seems to be the same group of nuns, so I wonder if it was a graduating class or some sort of celebration?

I left them in the album, since they seemed stuck!

 

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.
