Great-grandma Svendsen. (Janet Jackson has the spinning wheel)/ Probably Alvina and Clint with her.
  • Note: RE: photo of Grandma Svendsen. It was taken in the front yard of Grandpa Jensen's farm where I grew up. I recognize the barn and silo. I see GG [Great Grandma] is in her mob cap which she wore all the time. None of the other older ladies I knew wore one, so perhaps it was a Danish thing. I guess the children are Alvina and Clinton. I do have the spinning wheel. I had an expert in spinning wheels look at it when we were in Washington and she told me that it was a castle spinning wheel, designed for fine ladies to spin linen on. The story is that it belonged to Valdemar's sickly spinster sister Julia and she let them have it since there was not time to get another one made. I think GG used it to spin wool since I found some hand knitted sox and mittens and grey yarn around our house and my mother would certainly never have knitted or spun wool.1

    CLINT: Maybe to keep from getting sunburned maybe. Maybe that’s what I should do to keep from getting sunburned so badly, wear one of those bonnets.
    WILMA: Well probably when she was young that is what the women did was wear those bonnets.
    RUTH: I wonder if they used to do that in the old country or something.
    WILMA: They may have.
    CLINT: It wasn’t so fashionable to be all brown then though people tried to..
    HARLAN: I remember a lot of women used to wear bonnets outside, you know.
    RUTH: Well, I used to wear a sunbonnet I still do sometimes but that’s a little different. Hers was something she made.
    WILMA: Oh, yeah. What were they, just these little white bonnets?
    RUTH: Hers was just kinda, Well, she had two different kinds. She did make some that were fitted and some were just sort of like a circle.3
