(Editor’s note: The back of this photograph says “Floy Garris.” Floy was the second-oldest sibling in Bee / Momma / Grandma’s family, and born in 1910, about eight years before Bee / Momma / Grandma. How old do you think she is here? Take a guess, and then maybe we can date this photograph.)

  1. Wouldn’t it have to be a very special occasion for you to have a photograph made all by yourself? My guess is she was 18 years old and leaving for college. That would have made it 1928, does the dress look right for that date?

  2. I’d say that Boyd is right. There’s a photograph of the family going for a ride and it is dated 1929. Floy looks a little older in that photo. She was probably in college then and home for a visit or on summer vacation.
