Wow, the setting of this photo just takes my breath away! And then I wonder how these two ladies who look like sisters, and possibly even twins--are sitting on what appears to be a comfortable sofa, yet the beautiful misty fog seems to be rolling in just behind them in the branches of some majestic large trees. I wonder if perhaps Frances and Pearl might be outside on a deck that happens to have a sofa--or whether perhaps they actually are indoors, and there is an enormous floor-to-ceiling window just behind. Such architecture might be possible in the 1950s.

I was oh-so-curious about Frances and Pearl, and I see from their WikiTree profile pages that they actually are sisters... with a 15 year age difference! But when they are together, they both seem young again, as sisters do when enjoying each other's company.

Thank you so very much for sharing this lovely photo!

They are sitting inside with a very large window behind them. This is at my grandfather Sutherland's ranch house in Sebastopol on Baker Lane. He had an apple orchard out back, but I don't think those are apple trees out the window.
What a wonderful moment this photo captured, and how glorious that your grandfather's ranch house had such a beautiful large window!  I think you're right about those trees in view being something other than apple trees, judging by their leaves and branches that are visible.

What a joyous couple.  I wonder what tickled their funny bone?
