The attic of one of the barns held lines hung with young girl's clothes. The owner (who is closer to retirement than to grade school) identified some of the outfits as ones she wore as a youngster. It's amazing what people keep.

An absolute beauty. I think this is a new favourite of your shots. That dress is showing the wonderful patina of age.
