The date is carefully scratched above the Beldegreen name: June 25, 1914. Rose was 13 at the time.
On the back, the caption says this is her graduation from middle school school. (The diploma was a tip-off too.)
only I could thank the ancestor who wrote the caption (about five decades
later, I believe) for thinking ahead to let future generations know the
identity and significance of this lovely photo! And that's why this
isn't an entirely wordless Wednesday--because my thoughtful ancestor
wrote down who, when, and why.

This photo was in a box of old family photos from my mother. Probably these are distant relatives of my grandmother's, who came from Hungary, but who knows? No names, no info. That's why I resolve to label my photos for the benefit of future generations.
