Amy, Edith, and Ethel Becker

I love this picture! It looks like it should be in some long ago women's fashion magazine. I'm not sure when the picture was taken, but I believe it was probably sometime between 1910 and 1920. Amy Montgomery Becker, the beauty on the far left, was 18 in 1910 and the twins, Edith and Ethel Becker, were about 19 that same year. In 1920, they would have all been almost thirty, and I think they look younger than that. Does anyone else have an opinion?

I wish I knew the occasion which called for the girl's finery. I'm sure it was something special and how I wish someone had written on the back of the picture to let me know. Maybe someone out there in cyberspace knows more about this and will contact me. Wouldn't that be something!

In the meantime, be sure you label your pictures so future generations don't sit and wonder what is happening or why you recorded the moment for posterity!


  1. I have just started to do my nephews geneolgy for them. They are Ethel Becker's great-grandkids. Your site is a treasure. Please keep it going!

  2. Thank you for leaving a comment! It's nice to know that someone is enjoying what I post. If you need anything for your genealogy research, please let me know. I have quite a bit on the Becker's and Beyersdoerfer's. Louis, Ethel's brother, was my great grandfather.
    I am also very interested in sharing information and pictures of the families.

  3. I would be grateful for anything you might have - I don't have much.
