Photo of the Day: Anniversary Couple

As usual, I am guessing, the couple is celebrating an anniversary. I love the simplicity of the celebration. A card table and a cake, what else do you need? In my mind, they are surrounded by loved ones while celebrating this milestone anniversary. Maybe a 50th or 60th anniversary, but I cannot view the cake clearly.

I do have a couple of facts from the photo.

The photo was taken in July 1954.

The photo processing took place at:

Brown Photo Company

Minneapolis, Minnesota

Until next time…peace

Happy Veterans’ Day

When working with old photos, I come across numerous ones with military members. I often wonder if the service member arrived home safely? What were their duties? What did they do after their service was over?

Did they get married? Or spend their lives in the service?

I hope, every service person I view, continued on to lead happy, healthy lives. But, I do know the realities of war.

So, on this Veterans’ Day, I thank everyone who served.

Until next time…peace

Photo of the Day: The Lady with the White Boots

I am assuming, the lady in the photo is posing to show off her new white boots. I honestly do not know if this theory is true.

The photo was printed with some basic lab information on the back.

Brown Photo Services

Minneapolis, Minn.

June 12, 1941

I wonder if the photo was taken earlier in the year. The lady appears to be wearing a heavier coat which would be necessary for the Minnesota winters. In my opinion, I believe the photo was actually snapped in the spring of 1941. Then developed at a later date that is printed on the back of the photo.

Until next time…peace.

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

Photo of the Day: Family Gathering

Unfortunately, I do not have any information on this photo. In my opinion, I would say the photo contains members of the same family. They all resemble each other to an extent.

I am hoping the photo was part of a happy occasion.

What do you see when you look at the photo?

There is a car in the background. If anyone can guess a year, that would be one piece of information for the time frame of the 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

Some of the Fellows

I recently purchased some photos from an auction site.

In this particular find, the back of the photo reads, “Some of the Fellows”.

Unfortunately, I do not have any more information. I am assuming, the group was in the military at the time of the photo. I cannot tell which branch. If someone can distinguish the uniforms, I would like to know the branch.

Until next time…peace

Happy Valentine’s Day

I just want to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day!

I don’t know the story behind these photos of couples. But I thought they would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!

How are celebrating the holiday?

Until next time…peace

Ambassador Bridge 1957

This is a digitalized photo from a slide. The markers on the slide indicate the photo of the Ambassador Bridge over the Detroit River was taken on 7-26-1957.

From my understanding, the Revere site is in ruins and part of the property recently collapsed into the river.

Does anyone have any information on the site? Or the area? I would love to learn the history.
