Vintage Orphan Photo # 67 Cars Dapper Dressed Man and Boy and Coffee Shop Sign

Here is a great old photo I picked up at an estate sale some time ago. I am guessing it is from the 1930's. Pictured is one car with what looks like two women sitting in the front seat. Standing out side in their best clothes is a young man and young boy. Both are wearing hats. Parked next is another car showing only part of it.

In the back ground is a building with a sign over the door. With a magnifying glass I can read that it says coffee shop.

There is no name or notation of where this was taken. Back has marks showing that it came out of a photo album

I love old photos and hope that you enjoy this one.

Please take a moment and look at some of my other old photos.. Grace

Vintage Real Photo Postcard Three Men in Car

This is a great vintage Real Photo Postcard I bought at an estate sale some time back. Three handsome young men are pictured sitting in a car. Best part is they are identified. Driving the car is Allan Livar , in the back seat is Frank Montagel and Jack Thenel. The writing of their last name is hard to read so hope that the names are spelt correctly.
This is postmarked February 16 1914 from Atlanta Ga.
This is addressed to Miss N. M. Williams of Jacksonville Florida.
Written is The boy on the seat with me is my roommate. The other is a friend of mine from Meridian. Jack

My First Multi Media Art Vintage Photo, Lace and Jewelry

This is my first attempt at multi media art and I think it is kind of pretty. I found a vintage book at a library sale and took the cover as my back ground. To this I have glued vintage lace, faux pearls, an old rhinestone pin and vintage key found at the flea market. Main part of the art work is this old photo of a beautiful young woman. Here hair is parted and in waves. Around her neck is a large ruffle. She looks kind of sad to me.

I found a piece of an old poem ... " The world is empty in my heart; in my heart I feel my lifelong lonliness.

Plan to put this in my case at the antique mall soon for sale.

Lesson from a 62 year old lady.. Listen to body and go to doctor

My voice has been quite the last couple of weeks. Reason is I was very sick. Started on the 13th my 62nd birthday ( happy birthday to me ) . Started to have pain in my groin area. I am a stubborn lady and thought I had pulled a muscle. I am not very active so not sure how I could of done this. I laid in bed taking Tylenol for 1 week with ice packs.
Finally got some sense and got out of bed. Went to urgent care, emergency room next and into the hospital. Next day I was in surgery and found I had an infection. Just the luck of the universe I guess. I spent 11 days in the hospital on pain pills and antibiotics. I am now home with a wound vac and will be like this for 2 to 3 weeks with going to out patient for wound changes three times a week.

I am sharing this adventure to hopefully be a lesson to others. I hope that you are not as stubborn as I am and if not feeling well do not wait a week thinking all will be better. I was very ill with infection going down my leg. I am glad I went in when I did and had the brilliant young doctor's I had.

So dear friends in blog land and face book. Listen to your body and go to doctor if not feeling perfect.
And thank you to my family for visiting and for the little voices of my grandchildren who could not visit telling me " I love you grandma, get well" Nothing better than hearing those words.
I am glad to be home. Grace
