  1. I don't know if your aware, Jonathan, Jenny Lind was a Swedish opera singer. We have a pub here in the old town of Hastings named after her.

  2. Ray, I've heard of Jenny Lind, don't remember a lot about her (I'll have to remedy that). Sounds like a cool pub. I imagine a number of Swedes immigrated to McKeesport. Her framing almost gives the picture a 3D effect, as if she's about to get up and start walking, and I notice a melancholy, pensive expression.

  3. Ok, just looked her up, not necessarily a Swedish influence for the street name, she was just extremely popular.

  4. a beautiful photo and young lady, such a tiny waist. She does look deep in thought. Jenny Lind street sounds like a nice address.

  5. I'm not even sure about the pub name Jonathan, I assumed it was named after the Swedish opera singer. Think now I could be wrong.

  6. Ray, sounds like a good place to tip a pint regardless. Lisa, it is an appealing photo, makes one wonder about their life stories. This one only has "grandmother Karl" on the back.
