Spinsters, 1941

The 1941 Spinsters theme, “Only Hearts are Trump”

Founded in 1911, the Spinsters were made up of unmarried women of Mobile, although they changed that rule later so that married ladies could remain a part of the group. Their emblem is a parrot on its perch. This image shows players in the tableaux for 1941, which was themed “Only Hearts are Trump.”
