  1. Beekeepers! That’s a great title. The girls’ brass band is great, but unexpected. This series is always one of my favorites.

  2. The Golden Gleaners were 18+ right? I believe both of my grandmothers were in the Pioneer Stake in 1924. One was 21 and the other was 23.

  3. “Cassia Stake, Idaho” – My grandmother was born in Burley in 1912, and it would be awesome to be able to join the ranks of those who’ve recognized family members in these wonderful photo posts! While it’s hard to make out details of the young women’s faces, I see one or two at least that might be her (or her older sisters, born in 1908 and 1910).

  4. Yes, Bruce — The upper age was an absolute cut-off at the 30th birthday; the lower age was 18-ish: out of high school, or married, or otherwise more of a young adult than a teenager. The Gleaners in the funny hats might have been performing at some event your grandmothers took part in!

  5. I like the name, too, TOClark — so much more imaginative than most.

    SLK, I just can’t sharpen, or even add contrast, to the photo any more than I have to make it any more legible. In a moment I’ll email it to you in case you have better skills at cleaning up photos. Would really like you to be able to recognize them, if they’re there.

  6. Thanks, Ardis, I just received (and replied to) your email. :-)

  7. Beehive Girls at Fish Lake — in an overloaded boat. I count at least nine. Looks like they had lifejackets but Fish Lake is always very cold. I guess they did OK.

  8. Most of those girls (and women) have short hair. At least we were on trend.
