Why does she look like a racoon? Scott
I think she fell for that old trick,...here, look through these binoculars.
July 4, 1918 in California.
"You'll hold that flag like I said or I'll punch you in the eyes again , do you understand!"
Today she sees stripes. Yesterday she saw stars.
"I wish you'd get off that damned meth."
Jeeesh, how drunk would you have to get? That's spooky ~~
Looks like her old man gave her a "tune up" instead of the T....
Look at the man's eyes. The sun was directly overhead and her eyes being deep set. What looks like black eyes is actually the shadow from her eyebrows. Notice below the hairline on the forehead is also in shadow. The flag stick is in the radiator. She is holding the flag because there is no wind to hold it out.
Give her a break. She is probably the mother or grandmother of someone on this forum!

Cut down on the glare; you know, like the football players.
I only wish that the Immigrants coming in to our Country today would be proud to display the U.S. flag as these two did.
I think those who are poking fun at her dark eyes have missed the most revealing thing in the picture.
My two cents!
They should put that picture on the wall of the immigration office.
I must have missed something. Even the title is a question. How do you tell they are immigrants?

Mother Maybelle Carter , upon whose cross picking in Wildwood Flower I am eternally hooked.

I just looked it up. Mother Maybelle Carter was born in 1909. The Califunny license indicates the photo was likely taken in 1918. Mother Maybelle would have been about nine years old.
Mother Maybelle Carter was a part of the musical family the Carters, which included June Carter Cash.
Google search has become nearly useless to me. It found literally thousands of photos related to the Carter Family when I requested images of Mother Maybelle Carter (I am sure I could have somehow narrowed it down). Very few of them were actually Mother Maybelle. They even showed me pictures of coin collections. Talk about a reach! I didn't even use the name "Cash" in my search.
The one thing Google search did accomplish, was that even though it did not help much with Mother Maybelle, it showed me hundreds of photos of relatives. There is a considerable family resemblance between most of them and the woman in the OP photo. So, maybe a parent or ancestor to some of the Carter Family.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
