Photo of the Day: Two Ladies in a Garden

I do have a little information on this photo. The back of the photo is stamped with the following:

Brown Photo Service

Minneapolis, Minn.

June 22, 1942

The two women are posing with flowers. I think the flowers are peonies. I wish I knew their names.

I guess, the women could be sisters. Or perhaps, mother and daughter. What do you think?

What do you see when ou look at the photo?

Until next time…peace

Photo of the Day: Chapel at Camp

The only information I have on this photo is the handwriting on the back which reads, “Chapel at Camp.” I wish the person would have added more information.

The photo does give evidence of a warmer climate. The two large cacti located on each side of the doorway support my theory.

What do see when you look at this photo?

Until next time…peace

Happy 50th Anniversary

I purchased this photo as part of an online auction. There’s no information on the back of the photo.

The cake does have a 50 on the topper. I am guessing, the couple is celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

I like the ceramic ducks hanging on the wall. They remind me of some my grandpa had at his house years ago. There are also little ceramic pheasants on the shelf built into the wall.

There is a calendar hanging behind the stove but unfortunately, I cannot read the date.

When you look at the photo, what do you see? I am hoping the couple had many more years of happiness together.

Until next time…peace

Pheasant Hunting 1942

The photo does not have any identifying marks of the people. But there is a stamp on the back from the processing service, Brown Photo Service, Minneapolis, Minn. Then, under the stamp is the date, November 19, 1942.

Yes, the photo could be straightened. But I did not want to lose the car in the background. Does anyone know the type of car? I am horrible with old car names.

The photo reminded me of my grandfather who hunted a lot. He always seemed to have a cigarette in his mouth too.

I wish I knew about the couple.

In Front of the House

Unfortunately, this photo did not have any information or markings on the back. I purchased it as a lot off from eBay.

From the type of photo and the style of dress I am guessing the photo is from the late 1940s.

I am assuming this is a family gathering. There is an older couple in the photo. I am guessing the rest are children and grandchildren.

I can guess this is around Easter. If you look closely at the tricycle. There is a pail hooked to the handlebars. I can almost make out a duck or a goose on the pail.

What do you see when you look at this photo?

Until next timeā€¦peace

Carl & Mayme Schmidt-1942

This image was part of an eBay lot. The seller did not provide much information. But luckily, the photo has faded writing on the back.

The information reads:

*1942

*Carl & Mayme Schmidt

I like this old photo. What do I notice? I wish I could see the picture hanging on the wall. I want the old lamp. The wooden door in the background seems fitting for an older house.

As always, I wish I had more information on the couple. Does anyone out there recognize them? I would love to know their story.

First Congregational Church, St. Johns, MI

One of the photos I recently purchased off eBay was an image of the First Congregational Church in St. Johns, Michigan. I don’t have a date for the picture. If someone can tell me the year of the car in the image, I can have a better guess when the photo was taken.

I love old original buildings that are still in use today.

Unknown Lady

Do you ever look at a photo and wonder about the person in the image? Or am I the only person who thinks this way? I would love to know this lady’s story. I would also like to know what she is holding in her hand.

I do not know much about this image. The photo came in a group of negatives I purchased from eBay. The person who sold me the photos only stated the pictures were from an estate sale in Pennsylvania. But the seller could not give me any more information.

What do you think she has in hand?

 

Main Street, St. Johns, Michigan

Can you imagine catching the trolley to go up Main Street? I would love to step back in time to stroll down through the little shops past all the carriages. Of course, I would have to pet every horse on the way.

What do you see when you look at this photo? I do not have a date. I purchased the photo from eBay. But I just love it.

St. Johns, My Hometown

I absolutely love this old photo. I purchased the image off eBay. I cleaned it up a bit. But, I love the old fashion scene. It amazes me, especially when you compare the picture to today’s view.

What do you think?

Until next time…peace
