Here's my dad's step-mother - Joan Arnett Cheesbrough as a toddler, her sister Victoria and their step-brother Joseph Henry Cheesbrough. They're sitting on a stuffed ostrich at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition World's Fair held in San Francisco in 1915. The family visited here that year from their ranch home in Wyoming and purchased some new furniture as well.
These two photos are of Nellie Arnett Cheesbrough - Joan's (Dad's step-mom) mother. Can't you just see the joy in her face? I love it! We are so fortunate to have dozens of photos like this of the Arnetts and Cheesbroughs. It appears that they were refined and well-to-do. One of the sisters to Nellie was a doctor.
