Daisy M. Winslow driving a pony cart, Simsbury.

Isn't this a smashing pose with Daisy and her little dog beside her. The year was 1895. I wonder where she was going? Who was she? Why was she alone? Would anyone like to try and make up a scenario in their comments?

I just love these old historical pictures. I often do the same and wonder just what their lives were like. It seemed such a simpler life then. I bet she was on her way to town to go to the post office.

I love this photo. The good Diane says --I think she was on the way to the post office & general store.

The fresh Diane says she is on her way to the local saloon ;0.

I descended from winslows. My Gr. Grandmother Nellie Winslow named her daughter Daisy. Wonder if she is related.
