Okay, these days it can be just doggone annoying to have to get up off the couch to get new batteries for the remote. Think of how long it took to go from what you see in these photos to couch potato. Centuries and centuries required real labor to just get through the day. Virtually no one but the elite were immune to physical labor of some sort. Not so much today.
These photos were bought last year at an estate sale. No information available about the identities of the women. I can only surmise they were from Nebraska since other vintage images were from Nebraska.
I don't know why, but I'm convinced the second one is Cinderella.
