Google+ Georgia On My Mind: Wordless

Wednesday, August 25, 2010


Happy Wednesday!

Isn’t this an interesting looking lady?

She is Etheldra Prothro King……Mrs. Walter Ernest – and she is dressed to go to the opera….can’t imagine one in Cuthbert where she was from, so she must have traveled to Augusta…..or perhaps she was traveling to the Springer Opera House in Columbus.

The picture vault at the Georgia Archives lists her as president of the garden club in Cuthbert and instrumental in the Iris Garden. The garden still exists today…..This link shows students from Andrew College working in the garden.

Other bloggers post wordless images on Wednesday , too. Visit the main page HERE to find them.

.....and you can follow Georgia on My Mind on Facebook. Check out the badge in the right sidebar.

The garb is also interesting. Do you know what year this photo is from?
