I have created a podcast about Mary (Polly) Galland Casto.
The biography was written by Ina Hunt Tuft, a great granddaughter of Polly's, about 20 years ago.
In about 1995, at a family reunion, Ina dressed in a costume identical to what Polly is wearing in the photo I am posting today, and read from the biography. We videotaped this performance, but I have been unable to locate the tape at this time. If and when I do locate it, I will look into posting it on this blog.
As I recall, Ina was wearing the same cap and jewelry that Polly is wearing, but I believe she made the dress she wore out of very similar fabric.
