I decided to throw my hat in the ring with a semi-wordless Wednesday post… While this doesn’t quite qualify for the Ministry of Silly Hats, it’s yet another example of changing fashion trends over the years. It is also a nice contrast to my previous post that also had a wedding photo taken approximately thirty years after this one.
This is a photo of my grandmother, Mae Pater (nee Marianna Zawodna), around age 18. She is serving as “Maid of Honor” for her sister, Jane Zawodna, for her marriage to Sigmund Galecki in Philadelphia in 1926.
