So can I assume "Hebe" here means the Goddess of youth and spring?

And not something else?

oh, and as my post about this on my own site suggests, I'd make a substantial bet that this picture (note who is working and who is observing) illustrates just who was doing the work of producing those hams.

I hope so. I did some reading about her. She was quite the socialite from a prominent Mobile, Alabama family. She was well-known in Atlanta, Washington and New York high society.

The thing that leapt out at me is that Mamie is not given a surname. And I agree with NMissC about who was doing the heavy lifting.
