Grandpa Was A Cross Dresser! - Wordless Wednesday

While organizing the Arhival Closet, this photo of my grandfather, Richard Roos, turned up. Apparently there was a production of the Folies in his hometown of Cheney, Washington. I imagine it was put on by the community or the high school. I have a hard time envisioning the man I knew as my grandfather dressing up as a woman, even if it was for a local production!

Richard Roos in the Folies.
This photo of the group is especially precious because many of the participants are identified on the back of the picture (including one of Richard's brothers).

  1. What a wonderful photo! Thanks for sharing.

  2. He must have had a blast, and think of the stories he could have told about this event. Too funny.
