Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Sorry, no guess from me this morning. Her smiling face doesn't ring any bells at all.
The game continues!PJM
Irma Rombauer, author of "the Joy of Cooking", with delicious cobbler (and crepe) recipes.
No, it is not Irma.PJM
Hello Mr PJM, my guess will be Charlotte Perkins Gilman.
It is not Charlotte Perkins Gilman.PJM
Is it Clara Bellhaven, the famous Albino Activist and 1931 County Knitting Champion, of Glencarlynn?
It is not Clara Bellhaven.Ha! I have stumped you all!PJM
She is really very familiar, it isn't just that she has such a friendly face and engaging look. Is she the neighbor who testified for Chaplin in his divorce trial, Darla Gladstone?
It is not Darla GladstonePJM
Lou Henry Hoover
Not Lou Henry Hoover.I am making plans for my victory breakfast was we speak.PJM
It must be Bernice Bisslewhip, the first woman to openly opine that women are superior to their male counterparts.
It is not Bernice Bisslewhip.PJM
Is it Annie Oakley?
We have a Winner!It is Annie Oakley.PJM
Hooray! I can't believe I knew one; I never even guess but I always enjoy looking at the photos and finding out who they were. It was the comment that she looked so familiar that made me really start thinking WHO she looked like and so I cropped out everything except her eyes, nose and mouth and it helped.
Bound4Glory, good detective work! I thought the background looked like a military base. I checked the American Red Cross and the wives, mothers and daughters of various generals...obviously to no avail. The uncropped photo can be found here...http://blog.aurorahistoryboutique.com/images/annie-oakley-1.pngJohn

Congratulations, Bound4Glory!PJM, you will have that victory breakfast yet although I suspect you have been having wonderful breakfasts in any case with the production of all those delicious tasting vegetables.
Good job, Bound4Glory! She looked familiar to me too, but I couldn't place her. Nice one!
