Vintage Photo Friday
(as always, you can click on the picture to view it close up)
Here is another fun picture of my Great-Grandmother Clyta (my mom's dad's mother). As I mentioned last week, she was a great cook, working in many a restaurant including one of her own (I think she and my great-grandfather owned their own restuarant at some point), and working as a personal chef for a wealthy family in our city. This picture is obviously an early one of her in a restaurant as a waitress. She is the one in the middle.
There are so many things I love about this picture -- their waitress uniforms, the men posing on the other side of the counter, the items for sale on the shelves, and the advertisements on the back wall.
