Here is a little mystery for me. Sitting in the second row is my mom Lydia, wearing the vertically striped dress. On her right is her stepmom, Joanna. The picture is dated 1954. One of the girls in the picture may be Marijka. Otherwise, I have no idea who the others are, or what event they are attending. One of the few pictures I have of Babcia smiling. As an aside, the girl in the front row with the purse in her lap could be a doppelgänger for someone we knew in Florida, Sybil Athey.
