SISTERS! Twin Sisters. Dressing Alike for 88 Years



Born in 1915 these Identical twins loved playing jokes on the people around them.


They confused teachers in grade school and in High School they usually liked the same boy. One would flirt with a young man, leave and the other would come in putting on her act. The poor guys didn't stand a chance. The always shopped together and dressed identically. Calling to tell each other what they were wearing that day even if they weren't going to be together. One sister married twice and was in a long term relationship when she died. The other never married. In the thousands of pictures we found, there is only one of them NOT dressed alike and there are several of the Man of the Moment sandwiched between the sisters.

But like the song says "Lord help the Mister, who comes between me and my Sister, and Lord help the Sister who comes between me and my man"

A select lot of 100+ Twin Photos can be found this week at cemetarian on eBay
