Mirota Sisters as George and Martha Washington – 1932

Mirota sisters as George and Martha Washington, 1932

By George – it’s Washington’s Birthday! In this photo my sister recently sent me, Mary Mirota was dressed as George Washington, with her sister, Genevieve, dressed as Martha. The picture was taken at their farmhouse in Readington Township, Hunterdon County, New Jersey. They both were very handy with sewing machines, so most likely they made their own costumes.

I love when it turns out that my sister and I have similar photographs from years back. The version below is the copy that I have in my photo stash, with the caption showing the year of 1932.
