Spring Cleaning 1928

Spring cleaning is an annual task that has been with us for generations. Have you ever taken any pictures of your spring cleaning? We are fortunate to have a glimpse into the Terry family life in 1928, as seen in this photo.On the photo was written:

"1928. Spring cleaning. Clayton with the help from Lowell, Leslie & Mary Florence."

This image is from a family scrapbook loaned by Walter Terry; the pages were scanned by the library (August 2011). The scrapbook contains more than 600 photographs; 141 images were added to this database (series: 20110815). Most photographs are from Montgomery County, near Whitesville. A photocopy of the scrapbook is available in CDPL Local History, if you want to see it!

The children are outside of Home Place, on a rug. Clayton Terry (standing) holds a broom. Lowell Terry and Leslie Terry (kneeling) beat the rug with wire tools.Mary Florence Terry sits on the rug, seemingly amused by her brothers.
