Blast from the Past / Early 1930s: Twin sisters all dressed up

Wearing perfectly polished Mary Jane shoes, twin sisters LaVonne and LaVerne Carter are captured by a photographer in a moment at play in the early 1930s in Lewiston. The girls were born at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Lewiston and their family moved to Clarkston when they were about 4 years old. LaVonne Heitmann of Lewiston and LaVerne Herndon of Culdesac will celebrate their 90th birthdays this month.
