Blogger, photographer and Sacramento Connect partner Kari Bluff needs your help. She's trying to identify any of the girls in the above photograph taken in 1928 outside a horse barn in Hagginwood. (Click on the image to see a larger view.)
Why is she interested? Well, Bluff says in her blog that this old barn, now a part of Craigmont Equestrian Center, used to house her horse, Moose. Out of curiosity she did some research and found online this vintage picture of the polo team, archived at the Sacramento Public Library's Special Collections.
Bluff would like to find any relatives of the girls pictured. She makes this request, which we pass on to you:
So I'm asking you a favor, dear readers. If you live in Sacramento, or have older family members who grew up there, would you mind passing this post on to them and see if they remember having a female relative who was a horse person when she was younger? We really would love to track down even one family of one of the girls in the above picture, and bring them out the barn. How cool would that be -- seriously? I love stories, and I'd love to help unravel this one.
If you have information, contact Kari Bluff at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
