Three Cannons in Superior, about 1905

May 13, 2010

Charles, Neil and Lucille Cannon. circa 1905

Superior, Wisconsin. Charles Bernard Cannon (1900-1982), Neil–Corneilus–James Cannon (1898-1970), Lucille Anastasia Cannon (1896-1973), children of Agnes McCole and Dennis Cannon. Charles in later life resented these pictures of himself in a dress, but that was the ordinary way of clothing a small boy until (like Neil, above) he wore short pants. The hairbow may have seemed worse than the dress. When I, Charles’s daughter, was 5, I was subjected by my mother to the same hair-do, sausage curls wound around her finger (and sometimes painful when they were pulled off the finger).
