ORPHAN PHOTO # 129 A Little Girl And Her Book From Ishpeming,Michigan

Here is a darling photo I recently found at a sale. I could not pass up this sweet little girl. Long curly hair, frilly dress with a sash and she is holding a book in her hands.
No name to tell me who she is but she lived in the early 1900s in Ishpeming , Michigan and her photo was taken by Childs Art Galley.
Love vintage photos check out my eBay store to see what I am offering.

Going through a box of costume jewelry I bought at Monday's auction. Keeping 2 bangle bracelets for time being that I was wanting. Rest I will resell at upcoming  local auction.
In this box I found a dirty old envelope with metal print type 73 small letter T's. These I am putting up on eBay. For some reason these sell. Will be interested in seeing what they sell for. Would be great for creating jewelry or multi media art or what ever.

This photo was among some family photos I bought recently. The family lived in the Duluth, Minnesota area so I am guessing this where the photo was taken.
Large family great clothing. No names but on the back is written Summer 1905. The lady I bought from was a Nelson so sure many of these had that last name.
Thanks for stopping by. Grace

VINTAGE ORPAN PHOTO 127 Creepy Looking Real Picture Postcard Of A Baby

Todays orphan photo is a real picture postcard of a baby. The photo almost looks creepy. Child is standing but I wonder if some one is holding the baby up. Looks to young to stand all by itself. The shoes are dark and blend into the pictures so almost looks like a shoeless baby.
Post card is from the early 1900s. Thanks for stopping by.

Sepia Saturday 161 Vintage 1920s 1/26/2013 Black and White Photo Men And A Bottle Of Beer Break

Sepia Saturday is here again. I love to post a picture for this weeking posting but some times the week gets away from me.

This is my weeks entry, not quite on topic but close enough. Here we have a group of 14 young men out doors by a stream. All but 3 are holding a bottle which I am guessing is beer. On the ground right side are 4 more bottles standing amoung the ground cover. Near by are baskets or boxes of apples and a large knife sticking nearby in the ground.
The majority are dressed with dress shirts and ties, some are casually dressed. Behind the two men on the right side you can see hats hanging on the tree branches.
What is the meaning of the picture? Group of friends out together for some beer and apples. Is it a group of men who sell beer and it is a promotional picture?
I have no idea, no names written on it but a great photo any way. I am guessing age is 1920s to 1930s and measuring 10 inches by almost 5 1/2 inches.
Take a peek at what others are sharing by clicking the above link. Fun times and fun pictures every Sepia Saturday.

Orphan Photo #126 Belly On Up To The Bar Sweetie ~ Vintage RPPC

Here is one of my vintage Real Picture Postcards I have found and I will be selling on the Internet.
 No names to tell me who these ladies are.
They are pictured by a fake bar pretending to be a bartender and a drinker. Take note of their short hair that is unusal for this time period. They appear darker skin so could be hispanic.
They are so pretty with their sweet smiles. Sure wish I knew who they were. Take a look at some of the signs hanging at bar.

SEPIA SATURDAY 159 12 January 2013

Sepia Saturday #159 is all about bathing suits, water or just warmth in the sun. I could use some warmth right now. I have to admit it is not as cold as it could be hear in northern Minnesota at this time of the year.

Take a peek at other Sepia Saturday postings sharing their postings for this weeks topic of water or swim suits. This is three vintage black and white photos of a families outing on a summer day.

Thanks for stopping by Grace
