Ready For a Parade
Although we do not know exactly what occasion prompted the decoration of this automobile-and even some of the children- with leaves, one can hardly look at the photograph without smiling. Esther Serena Jordan sits behind the wheel, ready for a romp with a car full of children. She is dressed properly-hat, dustcoat, and gloves. The boy in front seat beside her is her son, Birkett Fry Jordan Jr. Her daughter, also named Esther, is the little girl in the back seat on the right. Little Esther grew up to marry Joseph McCarty Lang, from Dixie County, and they had two sons. Joe Jr. chose a career in the U.S. Navy, and James Frederick Lang became a Gainesville attorney.
