Picturing a World

Suffrage with a smile

After rereading a couple of chapters of ANONYMITY, my work-in-progress, I took a break by Googling images related to women's suffrage. This one popped up without any documentation, but for my purposes, that didn't matter. What I love are the candid smiles and sense of motion. Just what I need to make me feel I'm back in a living, breathing time.

And then—joy of joys—when I tried to run down more on the picture, I found the name of the lady in the big white hat: Trixie Friganza. If that's not enough, she seems to have had an affair with the composer of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." For more on that story, click here.
