More Phillipsburg, Missouri Teenagers

scan0375This was taken in the town of Phillipsburg, Missouri, and these teenagers are sitting on railway ties.  Aren’t they very dressed up?  I don’t know who any of them are except for the young lady at the back, who is either my mother’s first cousin, Reba McMenus (Harrill) or her sister, Francie McMenus (Montgomery).  At first view I thought it was Reba but when I blew it up, it looked a little like Francie.  The dress skirts are getting shorter, so I would guess this was circa 1920.


  1. A great example of the fashion of the era.


    • I love how they are sitting on the railway ties!
