This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt celebrates aprons. The photo prompt is of ladies working on an assembly line.
My ancestors seem to have be fastidious about taking their aprons off before having their photo taken.
I couldn’t find a single one.
The only old photo with an apron (or two) is of my fireman great grandfather Lewis Raikes GARRETT.
He is with two ladies in aprons who are sifting through the rubble of a house fire.
Their aprons are remarkably white given their surroundings.
My other photos are of my immediate family: mother, father and brothers mostly at play.
