Another vintage photo
This gem is labeled on the back "Dolores Birthday Party." Isn't it wonderful? My guess is that Dolores is front and center, with the white leggings and dark hair. There's no date, but I'm going to guess early 1900s; I say that because of the giant hair bows on the girls that remind me of the ones in photos of my grandmother -- the two children in sailor suits probably also give a hint at the date, as do the appearance of regular lace-up shoes (third girl from right) as opposed to boots, but I don't know enough to be able to really interpret those clues. Dolores' family must have been well-off to be able to hold a party for 16 children, wouldn't you think? I'm not sure when children's birthday parties came into vogue; more to research!
