The Mary month of May


My mother-in-law and her older sister celebrating May 1st about 1924. They were preparing to decorate an altar in their home in Frederick, Maryland to honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Hood College is in the background.

  1. I remember those days. When I was in the 8th Grade, I still remember the girl who was selected to crown the Blessed Virgin. As I recall, they could not have selected anyone that was more beautiful, pure and virginal. I think she is now the mother of six.

  3. It doesn't seem like 1924 was such a long time ago but it's almost 100 years ago. I just thought of that while looking at your photo. I hope they had a wonderful day. Wish I could see the altar. I like home altars.

  4. These photo bring back a time that is long gone. I wonder what is built up today on that spot they're standing on. I think of the great overlays on her old photos that Jasia did last year. Thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting. Always great to hear from you!
