75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Aug 25, 1938

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Aug 25, 1938

This entry is an irregular post on this blog from the diary of nineteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

From March 1 thru April 29, I posted every day, to cover the marriage and the early married life of Pete and Eileen (Kinnick) Smith, but decided to 'take a breather.'  Posts will be added, from time to time, as items of particular interest appear.

State Fair Time Approaches...

Here is the daily entry for Thursday, Aug 25:

Up late. Just finished breakfast when Betty, Pauline, Irene came down to get their hair set. They're going to the fair tomorrow, too. Canned 22 quarts of sauerkraut in p.m. At nite went in to town & ironed dresses and shirts. Mom cleaned a chicken for us. Home about 9:00. Went to bed right away.

My comments: Is this how you would prepare to go to the fair??

Eileen still using her Mom's iron, it appears. Here is an image I used earlier…

Families are Forever!  ;-)
