This very old commercial for Lion coffee of a lady watering her flowers reminds me of my great grandmother Myrta Ann Eacret Burgess. She wore a huge sun bonnet such as the one pictured and long dresses when out in her yard.

At one time Anna Burgess son James H. Burgess sold a variety of cards among which were small delicate calling cards. Shown is one of his samples with his mother's name on it.
