The pictures of my Aunt Aileen in her younger years are truly a treasure. Here she is in her graduation picture which I did feature in a past post in the page for the West Seattle High School yearbook. This photo is one of my very favorites of my aunt. My aunt’s formal name was Hazel Aileen Boardman.
Here she is in a fancy dress looking very happy. I place this about 1925 because she looks a lot like her graduation picture. Could this be a prom dress?
This picture is also a treasure. I do not know why she is in the sailor suit? It was very faded so I have manipulated this version a little. I do love the attitude of her pose.
Here she is sitting next to a young man in a sailor suit looking very shy. I do not know the name of the young man nor whether he was a relative or boyfriend. Her hair is different so it might be a much later photo.
There will be more pictures of my Aunt Aileen to come. Meanwhile, her sister Marjorie was also growing up and enjoying grammar school, high school.
