Roldolfo Cordero (United States, 1925)



Figure 1.--Here we note a Mexican-American boy from Los Angeles named Roldolfo wearing a romper suit with long stockings and sandals in 1925. He was 22 months old. Mother probably bought te 2-year old size. These romper suits are American styles. The family speaks Spanish, but the clothes seem to be entirely American in style.

Here we note a Mexican-American boy from Los Angeles named Roldolfo wearing a romper suit with long stockings and sandals in 1925. The romper suit has a square collar with detailing at the collar and waist. It was a colored suit, although we do not know the color. He was 22 months old. Mother probably bought te 2-year old size. These romper suits are American styles. The family speaks Spanish, but the clothes seem to be entirely American in style. The AZO postcard stamp box has two triangles up and two downm but in this case the card is dated. The card has a message, but was not mailed. The message as far as we can make out read, "Desicames Úste como un recuerdo de nuestro hijito Roldolfo para nuwstro querido papa Dr. Primo Codero H. Edad 22 months." Signed Sus hijos Primo N. Cordero. N. Jesus A. de Codero. A post script reads, Los Angeles 5-9-25. We are guessing from this that Roldolfo's last name was Cordero. The message would translate as something like, "We dedicate this as a rememberance of our little son Roldolfo for our beloved father Sr. Primo Cordero H. Age 22 months." It is signed "Your children, which would be Roldolfo's mother and father." The card was probably mailed in an envelope so we do not know where Roldofo's hrnd dather lives.
