Three Wise Monkeys, c1924

I was traveling yesterday and forgot to post. I’ve occasionally failed to post  because I was too sick or so far out in the country that I couldn’t get a signal of any kind but I think this is only the second time I ever just plain forgot.

Nobody’s perfect.

For some reason on this post-election Wednesday I thought of these three young ladies I came across last week in scrapbook belonging to Allie May Autry ’25 (who I wrote about here):

    An interesting lock of hair on two foreheads. Was this a popular hairstyle at the time?

      Interesting. I hadn’t noticed. I’m out of town but when I get back next week I’ll take a look.

        Yes, evidently it was a style in the 20s. They called them spit curls or kiss curls. I read that the purpose was to soften the bobs, since this was the time when hairstyles were moving from long hair to the bob, which could look masculine to those used to long hair.

          Brings to mind:
          There was a little girl
          Who had a little curl
          Right in the middle of her forehead.
          When she was good
          She was very, very good.
          But when she was bad she was horrid.

    Do you know where the pictures were taken? I am intrigued by the houses and paths or streets behind them.

    I am reasonably willing to consider this is along Main Street. There are similar houses in this Flying Owls photo. https://scholarship.rice.edu/jp2/viewer.html?url=https://scholarship.rice.edu/bitstream/handle/1911/63531/wrc00434.jp2
