I believe that this was made at the Sacred Heart Church…not sure if it was in the school part or the fellowship hall.  I doubt that the building was air conditioned when this photo was taken, so you know it would have been warm in this room.  Even if it was in the winter and the heat was on, you know that wearing this “habit” had to have been uncomfortable .  The head pieces looked uncomfortable and to wear them all day really look restrictive.   Some one told me that the nuns habits were made of wool and they wore the same habit for winter and summer back in the 1950’s and 60’s.   Thanks for looking … Frank
