Wordless Wednesday: Lois Warren Judson, Tampico (1953)

Lois Warren Judson standing in her living room. Calle Rosal y Encino, Tampico, TAMPS., Mexico. Photograph. c1953. Privately held by Herstoryan, Houston, Texas. 2010

I love the drapes! Lois is my great grandmother. Here is a photo of her husband William Levis Judson taken around the same time. 


  1. I love the drapes too and the fact that her shoes match the drapes! :)

  2. I noticed the same thing as Lori...but not only do her shoes match the drapes, so does the book she is holding...her dress picks up the secondary color in the drapes too :)

    If this posts twice it's because I was logged in under my other account (with no blog associated with it)

  3. Not just the drapes and the shoes and her book, but many of the books on the top shelves and the little box sitting in the corner are red! Clearly, your great-grandmother loved red! Do you know anything about her personality? I always think of red as a daring color - and therefore imagine that people who love red are a little daring. Charming photo. I also love the fan!
