Sorry theses photos are small. They are scans of cameo locket photos. This is my paternal grandmother Marie in 1930. She had sisters who did the complicated fingerwave hairstyles for each other. It helped that they all had naturally curly hair, and all were strawberry blonds. I wonder if those are bakelite beads around her neck?

My maternal grandmother Erlinda in 1941. She was fond of victory rolls and liked to try different configurations. She worked to help put her brothers through college before they both went into the Army-Air Corps in WWII. I love the delicate hand tinting of the photograph.
