Carnival of Genealogy Swimsuit Issue

This picture is my sister Jacque and me in a small pond at my grandparents house. I hope I was wearing a swimsuit here, but it does not show in the picture.
I was really surprised I could not find another picture of me in a swimsuit. I know there is one here somewhere that has me and about 7 or 8 other children at the lake home of a friend, but I have not found it yet. My parents bought a lake lot when I was about 6 years old and we built a cabin there and I have went swimming each summer since then. Problem is I am light skinned and sun burn easily, so I nearly always wore a t-shirt when I was swimming. I found a few pictures with me in a t-shirt but the t-shirt covered up my swim suit. Glad we have sun screen today.

These next two pictures are of my great aunt Latisha, Vanderpool (Tish in the pictures).

I don't know who Mrs. May is. This one says after our Finn Bath
They were taken at Lake George, Minnesota in August 1942.


  1. You and your sister are adorable in the first photo! The other photos are great, too.

  2. That pond must have had a fountain. Your comments are funny. Great summer time swimsuit photos.

  3. It was like a fountain, but had a sprinkler in the middle of the top. The top was a bird bath. I don't remember the pond at the bottom but do remember the bird bath and the sprinkler in the middle of it.
