Betty Buck, Immortalised with Pillow Bumpers….

…a lovely picture, just redolent of its era. Here’s the attached caption from Shorpy.com:

“Aug. 8, 1936. Washington, D.C. “Safety first for this Miss. Equipped with bumpers fore and aft, 4-year-old Betty Buck is taking no unnecessary chances as she tries her first pair of roller skates.” Harris & Ewing glass negative.” (Shorpy.com)

The hairstyle is so sweet, with the white ribbon and ankle socks: it must have been taken by a professional photographer – the image is so sharp…
