This photo was taken during a parade in Eugene, Ore., in 1929 on Willamette Street. It shows my grandmother, Margie, with her six sisters, Eva, Helen, Donna, Ethel, Edna, and Ione. I'm not sure which order they're in and there are a couple unknown children in the wagon. The parade probably had something to do with the 70th Anniversary of the statehood of Oregon that took place in 1859. At this date only Eva, Helen, Donna and Margie remain.
