The Comstocks

Here is a joyful gathering of Mr. and Mrs. Ross Comstock with friends and family. I don't know who they are or where they are. The stamp box in the upper right-hand corner indicates that the card was printed sometime between 1904 and the 1920s, a fairly broad range.

Is that really a hat the young woman in the front is wearing, or is it something she put on her head as a joke? It's very unusual. It's so nice to have the names on the back, but not knowing the location it's hard to say for sure who these people are.


  1. What an interesting collection of folks! The homemade hat woman looks so happy! Inspiring.

  2. Its probably a real hat but it kind of looks like a lamp shade.

  3. Lovely happy group...but I'm surprised really that they weren't all wearing some kind of hat..back then especially outside! Nice photo!

  4. It's almost certainly a hat, one so spectacular that they just had to put her front-and-center!

  5. You could imagine a whole novel just from these faces. Great characters. Especially the guy with the hat atilt, the imperious older woman in back, and the lady on the far left with the Gibson girl bun. But really they all have something going on that makes you want to know more...

  6. The cocked hat on the fella -- can't help but wonder if his attitude matched. I bet he was fun to be around! Great PC.
