...until her cousin Lewis showed up!
Can you see him hiding behind her? How embarrassing - just another in a string of tortures he loved to put her through every family gathering... As you can see Dorothy is "smiling" while in fact she is figuring out what her revenge will be this year (perhaps a faulty potato sack for the race, or maybe a tossed horseshoe that goes slightly awry).
Dorothy and Lewis are actually named on the back of this 1949 photo. She will be added to my Girls of Summer collection. So hard to believe only one week left in our Summer of Colour challenge - but it really has been fun. Enjoy. Jewels (quick - who sang It's A Family Affair???)
