Fearless Females - Girlfriends!

A good friend is a connection to life - a tie to the past, a road to the future,
the key to sanity in a totally insane world. ~Lois Wyse

In honor of Women's History Month and our Fearless Females, I decided to post a couple girlfriend pictures! (click on any image to enlarge) Above is my great-grandmother, Elizabeth Linneman Speck, circa 1920. She is flanked by two friends and they appear to be dressed up for something. At the top her daughter wrote "cowgirls? or cowboys!"
Girlfriends and sisters, Marian and Minnie Cubbage, circa 1935. These great-aunts had three other sisters: Leah, "Babe" and Marge. 

Agnes Speck mugging for the camera with girlfriends, circa 1937.

Elizabeth Linneman Speck (left) and Agnes Speck (3rd from left), my great grandmother and grandmother. The back of the photo has "Neptune Cottage 1939" written on it.
