Mabel Winifred Deitch Root

Mabel Winifred Deitch b. January 17, 1891 in Galt, Waterloo Co, Ontario, Canada. Died May 16, 1984 in Greenbrae, California.

Mabel immigrated with her family from Canada to Los Angeles in 1910. The photo was taken in Los Angeles California shortly after she came to Los Angeles. Later she married Joseph Langdon Root on October 30, 1915 in Los Angeles. She was married at her sisters house.



From the style of her clothing, this is a few years before she was married. See "Victorian and Edwardian Fashions from ‘La Mode Illustree’" by JoAnne Olian and "Everyday Fashions, 1909-1920, As Pictured in Sears Catalogs" by JoAnne Olian for the clothing of this period. I'm not very familiar with the clothing of this period, so all I can tell you is that is from abou 1909-12, though you could probably date it better using those books.
