WATERPORT – Lillian Sargent of Waterport posed for this photograph taken by Fred Holt around 1925.

She is the epitome of style for a teen-age girl of the 1920s. Note the bobbed hair, beads around her neck, summer dress, stockings and shoes.

She was the envy of girls whose mothers would not let them get their long hair bobbed.

This was meant to be an artistic picture but it also shows us a lot about the style from the Roaring ’20s.
