Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Good morning. Is it Queen Elizabeth and her daughter Queen Elizabeth II?
Welcome to the game, Karen. It is not QE I or II.The game continues!
Louise and Margaret Carnegie
Dave,I am going to declare you the winner. It is Andrew Carnegie's wife and daughter. I dont know the daughters name.Good job.PJM
I don't know what age the little girl is, but she is sitting there some nice and proper.That must have been a tough life, growing up with all that upper class life and having to dress and act so grown up all the time. Who says the Uber Class have it easy. I'll bet that this little girl is hot and uncomfortable, and I;ll bet she isn't fidgeting around either.Now tell me wouldn't you rather be out there climbing a tree or something else other than sitting so prim and proper?
Too fast! What is going on in PJM's world today? Could he have tractor shopping on the to-do list?
He is probably recovering from the first week of school and finishing (hopefully) his commercial sized hydroponic garden. The top is on it now so the temperatures must soar with the rising sun.
Is "Dave Nelson" a pseudonym for Nate Maas? Oh well, I'm sure Nate will have some interesting background info to add.
I met an uber-rich once, though I can't remember now if he was one of the Carnegies, or Du Ponts, or what. He was a nice fellow and had to work for a living, just like the rest of us. The progenitor of the fortune stipulated that the inheritance would go to even numbered generations and this fellow belonged to the odd-numbered generation. He was still pretty well off, but not obscenely so. The practice seemed to keep a modicum of humility in the family.
Mathan, "Progenitor!" Thanks for the good word for my English students.I'd say the little girl doesn't look as if she's having a very good time, but then again, 'fun' wasn't the highest cultural value back then.
