I received this message from David Pekrol through my "Vintage Gay Couples" page on Facebook:
"This is a couple of women named Cookie and Mary Alice in the Charles Lindbergh drag. The photo was taken in 1930 in Pine Cove, CA - a small mountain town. I was friends with Cookie until her death in 2008 at the age of 99. Alice passed in 1993. These two women were together 60 years."
I love that there are names and a story to go along with this picture. Thanks so much to David for sharing this bit of our history! Please contact me if you have any vintage gay or lesbian photos with a personal history.
