The Bullock Sisters in Drag

This photo, on display at the museum, is captioned "H.B.I. Club." I don't know what "H.B.I." stands for, but it looks like fun.

Luckily for us, the caption identifies all these lovely ladies.

Back row, left to right: Lily (Mrs. Fred Hammond) Johnston; Cora Beach Schedell; Elizabeth Rossow; Ida Heck; Ida Rossow Hendricks; Lillie Mereness Davis; Alice Vincent Hatfield; Clara Rossow.

Second row from top, left to right: Anne Fleck Ingram; Lily Rose Scholler; Martha Heck; Elsie Picke [Piske, perhaps] Mummery; Lena Michelson; Emily Johnston (Sterling).

Third row from top, left to right: Hazel Lueher Vincent; Ruth Bullock Mackey; Anna Michaelson (Dr. Morton-Schwab); Julia Fleck Griffin; Clare Fleck; Etta Bullock (Killigrew).

Bottom row, left to right: Lillie Rossow Hasselbar; Margaret McCormick Scholler Wilson; Helen Mackey Rhodes; Martha Heck.

Helen Mackey was the younger sister of Dwight Mackey. Helen married George Rhodes, the plumber (of the famous plumbing firm, Lee & Rhodes). She became the bookkeeper of the business. All of which means that Charles Lee had an Ainsworth connection. (Charles Lee » George Rhodes » Helen Mackey » Dwight Mackey » Ruth Bullock » AINSWORTH!)
