Love Those Hats!

Bertha Collins is third from the left. Photo in the Austin collection.

Bertha Collins was the granddaughter of the Collins family who originally owned the Collins’ house and who I assume Collins Road in Eldred was named after.

(By 1905 my Austin grandparents owned one of the Collins homes—there were two I know of and I think both burned down—and ran it as the boarding house: Homestead Cottage.)

Bertha Collins attended the same school (Centenary Institute) as my grandfather Mort Austin.

I think this photo was taken between 1890 and 1900.
