Today we want to take a moment to honor the life of Barbara Bush who died yesterday at the age of 92. The wife of President George H. W. Bush, and the mother of President George W. Bush, Barbara Bush was by all accounts an outspoken, witty, and formidable women. She was an advocate for many causes, most notably of which was her work championing literacy. The photograph featured here is from the 86th Army-Navy game that was held in Philadelphia in 1985. To then Vice President George H. W. Bush’s excitement as a veteran of the Navy, the Navy Midshipmen won this game 17-7. Barbara is pictured here by his side, where she stood throughout their 73 years of marriage and many years in public service. Barbara is survived by her husband and children, and will be remembered and honored by the entire country. Citation: Vice President George H. W. Bush and Barbara Bush at the 86 th Army-Navy Game, Box 41, Events, Public Relations, Philadelphia Navy Yard, RG 181: Records of Naval Districts and Shore Establishments, National Archives at Philadelphia, (NAID: 279176) (HMS ID: PH-6334). #barbarabush #bush #41 #georgehwbush #archives #history #army #navy #nara

    In this Clean Plates edition, there was moldy food, rusty food slicer blades, rodent contaminated cat food bags and a men's restroom without a door. But what was really disgusting was the number of cases of mice and rat droppings that were found in children's classrooms and restrooms. Philadelphia food inspectors temporarily closed 34 facilities between April 1 and April 13.

Nearly 24,000 women and girls entered costumes in a “Dress-Your-Best” Contest sponsored in 1954. Marlene Dillman won a trip to Paris--click on the links to see photos of her winning outfits in the City of Lights. According to a McCall’s study at the time, the "average woman who sews" is a housewife between 20 and 39 years old, who has one or two children and a family income above the U. S. average. She makes 21 garments a year – 14 of them for herself. In addition, she makes six garments for her children and one for her husband. Did your mother sew outfits for you when you were a child?
