Weather Report - A change of temperature



A change of temperature was in store for these two ladies. Wyoudia Emery, my father's step-sister and Katherine Allen, my mother's sister, are pictured together here. I am unsure of the year or exact location. However, I believe it to be around 1950 in Clifton Springs, New York.

I have several photographs that state on the back "taken before leaving for New York". That move would have been from Arkansas, around Shirley in Van Buren County. I remember the story to be that the family moved to New York to get jobs on some type of pipeline. They stayed several years then all moved back to Missouri.

The snow must have been a novelty for these Arkansas natives as most of the photos labeled as being in New York include snow.
