Photo Of The Day

All-girl jazz band the 'Flying Flappers' pose in front of their
airplane for a photographer in the USA, in the mid-1920s.

The drummer, seated on the far right, is my gradmother Marie (Perry) Borgeson. I have an original of that photo hanging in my house. My grandmother was the sweetest woman I've ever known. She lived most of her life and eventually died in Muskegon, MI in 1983 at the age of 70.

She loved playing the drums and taught my sister to be a drummer, who eventually became the first lead drummer for her highschool marching band.

Thanks for posting. Scott Sowa
