Click on photo to see a larger view.  Is mom or dad in this group?

As we're still in May, observing our May devotions, we remember that the custom of dressing some of our children as angels goes back many years.  Here, children in Hagåtña dressed as angels pose beside the Cathedral in the 1920s.  The boys were dressed as Archangels, complete with the straps of their soldier's sandals.

The second girl from the left is still carrying her little basket of flowers.

These outfits would not have been store-bought (what few stores there would have been at the time) but would have rather been sewn by seamstresses (kosturera) at home.
