My mom sent me this photo of Grammy and Edie, with the following note:
The story is that Jane kept pinching Edith, so her costume was made to contain her hands, hence the duck. Edith is a Rose. Turns out they told each other years later that they each wanted to be the other character! Mom said she thought it was a performance or playlet at the YWCA, circa 1934. It is a family classic photo.
Thanks for sending it, Mom! I am laughing so hard every time I look at it.
