Happy Mother's Day to my Grandmother

Happy Mother's Day to my grandmother Jennie Walsh Reilly who raised me up. She probably made her hat, as she made most of her clothes‚ and the coyote fur may be from the Walsh Home Ranch, in Austin, NV. She once told me how they made fur coats from the coyote skins and when they walked down Market Street in San Francisco in their elegant new coats, all the street curs followed Jennie and her Aunt May, hackles raised, howling, howling at their fur coats.

(At the Cliff House, SF, late 1920s.)
