What made her laugh?

Betty Koon

I found this sweet little gal at a curio shop called Keepers here where I live. This is Betty Koon. Betty Koon is a surprisingly popular name, with about  11 born between 1901-1930, all across the US! I am hesitantly dating this photo as 1900-1910, but I could be off. There is no photographer information on the photo. I just love the expression on little Betty’s face, as though someone made her laugh. She is wearing a necklace as well as a baby ring.

    She is as cute as a bug in a rug. Her shoes are just too cute!

    It is such an unusual expression. You get the feeling that if you were to see the same face 40 years on you would still recognise it.

    Throw in the fact that Betty might be a nickname for Elizabeth and you will probably find another 5-6 matches. Most of them appear to come from South Carolina (I just did a quicky peek).
