Clarence and Lydia Rasmussen

What it is:

Photo (slightly less than 4 x 5.75 inches) mounted on a cardboard frame/backing (6 x 8 inches).

What I know about it:

Written on the back in pen is Uncle Clarence and Aunt Lydia Rasmussen.


I have a bunch of photos from this Rasmussen clan.  Someday I’ll sit down and try to chart out how they’re all related.  They cover a couple generations of Rasmussens, and seem to branch out to other family names, too.  Meanwhile, I might as well post one, so here are Uncle Clarence and Aunt Lydia.  In previous posts, I wondered about what seemed to be a period practice of posing couples and families with the man seated and the woman standing.  This is, obviously, an exception.  My guess as to the reason here, assuming there is a reason here, is that Lydia might well tower over Clarence if she were standing.  This photo would also seem to cast doubt on the notion, previously discussed, that large hair bows were worn exclusively by children.  These Rasmussens, such rebels!

  1. Perhaps she is a “child” at heart. . .
