A fun picture to enjoy on a Friday.
I love this picture because Bertha Galpin reminds me of Miss Almira Gulch – the mean lady who wants Toto destroyed – from The Wizard of Oz (1939 film). It’s the bike that brings the comparison to mind. All that’s missing are baskets for the front and back.
Bertha is not a relative of mine, but she was a friend to the Bausmans. The photo is kept in a beautiful antique Bausman photo album.
Written on back of photo: Bertha Galpin, no relation. Neighbor & Friend of the Bausmans. Photo taken at Byerly in Parkersburg, Iowa.
