In July of 1941, when my mom was nineteen, she took a trip to Saugatuck, Michigan, with her friend, a Chrysler co-worker named Frances. The other day, I found a few pieces of correspondence my mom wrote while on that trip. As a result, I was able to identify several snapshots taken there, a few of which I'd included in the book about my mom's childhood.
Mary Kerr's friend Frances
Saugatuck, July 1941
My mom feigned hitch-hiking for a little photo-snapping fun . . .
. . . but it looks like Frances had a lot more fun with that speed-limit sign!
A rippin' good time so far, huh? Well, just wait until tomorrow, when they meet some... aw, never mind, I don't want to spoil the delicious anticipation...
