These young ladies look like they are dressed for a Siberian winter, although the location of this photograph is central Wisconsin. Sisters Lillian M. Albrecht (left) and Esther M. Albrecht are bundled with fur coats, hats and hand warmers. The photo was taken about 1920, probably at Vesper, Wisconsin, their home town.
Lillian married George J. Ladick in June 1922, and the couple had four children: Sylvia (1923-1961), Lucille (1925-2005), Lawrence (1930-2000) and Shirley. Esther married Emil R. Gottschalk in November 1930, and the couple had two daughters, Pearl (1936-2012) and LaVon.

I love their hats!
This was taken just outside at their homestead. Lucille Ladick was my grand mother and is missed dearly.
Thanks for the additional information, Scott. I did not know your grandmother, but her sister Shirley has been a great source of information in my genealogy research. I pray that God has richly blessed your grandmother in eternity.
