Chehalis, WASHINGTON – 1921

012fThis photo was taken in 1921 at the State Training School in Chehalis, Washington where my great Aunt Anna worked for about two years.  That’s her second from the left in her kitchen garb.  She was a house mother, taught domestic science to the boys, and also did some cooking.  Her daughter, Ednah, is on the right, son Oscar next to her, and then Ednah’s husband of the moment on the left.  Ednah looks like she is wearing culottes.  The training school was a combination orphanage and reform school.


  1. Another fabulous photo.
