American Legion Women's Auxiliary

Title

American Legion Women's Auxiliary

Description

Black and white image of a group of women in uniforms standing in a row front of a stage in a grange hall. They wear dark calf-length skirts, short, bolero-style jackets, and white blouses. Small fezzes sit atop their heads, and their hair is generally collar length and pulled back from their faces. All wear braid looped about and under their left shoulders. A man stands at the left end of the line; he wears a forage cap, a dark shirt and tie, jodhpurs, and boots. Museum records identify the group simply as an American Legion group, but this image was part of the Herbert E. McMullen bequest. McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other images of daily life in the area.
