OLYMPIA -- Dozens of Washington residents appeared in turn-of-the-century costume -- and by that we mean the turn of the 20th, not the 21st, Century -- at the Capitol today to celebrate the centennial of women receiving the right to vote in the state.

Here Talcott Broadhead handles daughters Clementine, age 5, and Henrietta, age 15 months on the steps of the Capitol Rotunda next to Darrell Holt and Carole Rambo Holt.
