Description Photo of Lora Worthen and others on the running board of a car, undated. Left to right, Lora Worthen (Mrs. Edwin B. Sr.), Clara Ballard (Mrs. Walter C.), Polly Kraetzer (Mrs. Eugene), Florence Webber (Mrs. Bernard M. of Bedford), Minnie Glynn (Mrs. Edward). An unnamed woman is partially seen on the right edge. Double limerick written on verso:
"Here's a truly loquacious quintette,
"And all that I have to regret
"Is that Hel was away
"Gathering herbs by the bay
"Or perhaps in Frank's suit - I forget!

"Then also it really was mean,
"There is nary a glimpse of our Queen.
"But I can't much deplore
"That there warn't any more
"Of our tailor boss here to be seen!"
