May Ludwig Brown - Dolls & Bookkeeping!

As a young lady, May was in no hurry to grow up; but she must have done well in school, to have been studying bookkeeping when she was only 13 years old.  She attended this school and took this course of study in the spring of 1904, before they moved from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles.  She worked as a bookkeeper before she and Walter Blanchard Brown were married.
She treasured her beautiful china doll all her life, and had a new wig made for it (with her own hair) when I was a young girl.

Just click on the layout, and you'll be able to see it in a 'readable' size.  I've done these layouts using a kit (Family Historian from Forget-Me-Nots by Theresa Lindamood
