Tourists camping near the Black Forest, Germany, 1957.
Jane M. Bolin was the first Black woman graduate of Yale Law School and the first Black woman in the United States to become a judge. She is pictured here in July 1939, shortly after her appointment by New York City mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia, which made news all over the world. Judge Bolin retired in 1979 after 40 years as a judge - but only because she had reached the mandatory retirement age of 70. She died at age 98 in 2007.
I thought I would share Judge Bolin again since the post I wrote last year is floating around Pinterest… ;)

This picture is from 1925, and it shows Western Union Messenger Girls at the United States Capitol. A great picture from the “Roaring Twenties”.

The pensive mother…
