Here are the Spruce Girls yet again. Number 2 in my Spruce Girls series. I just love these sassy galz.
This photo was taken in 1929 and features lovely ladies called the "Spruce Girls". The photo was taken by Vern C Gorst (1876-1953) ca. 1929 in Hoquaim, Washington State.
Lumber was the lifeblood of Hoquiam, Aberdeen, and all of Grays Harbor, Washington. Throughout the first quarter of the twentieth century, Grays Harbor County retained its title as the greatest lumber-producing and lumber-shipping region in the world. To celebrate Wood Week, five young ladies were selected to wear bathing suits made entirely from thin spruce veneer to promote the products of the Washington lumber industry.
Veneer is very thin sheets of wood.
While there are 5 spruce Girls, one is missing from this photo. Can we assume a splinter problem? LOL You have a splinter WHERE?
Ouch! Sistah, can you help me with a splinter?
At any rate, these are cool photos I obtained from the University of Washington data files, no copyright.
Thanks to my friend Helbert for the gift of the cool vintage burlap fabric that I have placed behind the photo. Thanks Doll! People like YOU make this a wonderful community.
I used the Dusty Attic Corner Flourish #2 DA0629 here.
I thank you kindly.
