52 Ancestors: Two Biker Babes!

Posted by: Eileen A. Souza

This photo was unidentified and in the box of photos that my sisters and I inherited from our mother.

Amy Johnson Crow in her write-up for Week 27 said that the theme, Independence, reminded her of flappers. I was having a problem with this theme until I saw her remark and remembered this photo.

The thing is I know nothing about the photo and the identity of the two women. The photo appears to be from the 20th century probably in the late teens to the early twenties.

The front of the photo has Lewistown written in pen. I assume this refers to Lewistown, Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, created from part of Northumberland County in 1789. Most (if not all) of my US ancestors resided in Northumberland County.

I think that the woman on the left may be my grandmother, Eileen Lorraine Gunther Noble, but I could be wrong.

Can anyone put a name to either or both women?


The 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks challenge, initiated by Amy Johnson Crow, is a series of weekly prompts to get you to think about an ancestor and share something about them. The guesswork of “who should I write about” is taken care of. This week’s theme is Independence.

    Great Aunt Marg in sidecar. Grammy was younger and prettier so maybe her in drivers seat

    • I think you are correct about Great Aunt Marg being in the sidecar. I just found her wedding photo and it does look like the same person. I have never seen Grammy with blonde hair. I have a photo of Grammy about the same time period with dark hair. She was 19 when she married. She was three years older than Marg. Thanks for helping me identify Great Aunt Marg.

  2. Happy 6th blogiversary, Eileen. I always enjoy your posts and I love the photo of the biker babes.
