No diary entry today, but some more info on Elizabeth Campbell, from Aunt Marjorie.

"My brothers sometimes liked to tease our Grandmother Campbell. One summer day a girl wearing shorts (not too common in the 30's) passed the house and Grandmother commented, 'There's a naked girl going down the street!' The boys, with exaggeration, ran to the window and cried 'Where - where?'. Grandmother didn't approve of the way girls dressed, however when I badly wanted a bathing suit to go swimming with school friends, she gave money to Mother to buy me a suit, in June, in advance of my October birthday".

Does any generation approve of the way the next generation dresses?

  1. I guess I dressed ok since I dont' remender her commenting on my clothes. She had her dresses made for her, and when one wore out she had another made. It was a deep maroon color, light weight wool, high neck & long sleeves. I don't remember ever seeing her in anything else. She always wore the same style shoes also - black, with laces and heels about 1 1/2 inches high. At least she didn't have to made a decision on what to wear
