One of my favorites…

My limited knowledge of borders does allow me to say that Elko frames were in circulation between 1935 – 1945. This is a photograph that intrigues me. No other information provided. The marquee says “city”. I believe the word “Bureau” is on the side. And of course, the Budweiser sign on top. Odd, lonely and full of mystery. What a good photograph. Found in a thrift shop in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

August 1963

This image is from a box of slides labeled Newark Park, Moms & Mrs Crawford, Mothers Day, 1965, Trees In Roosevelt Park. But as the case usually goes, there are slides mixed in with this particular set dating prior to the label and probably not associated with the title. Looks to be from up north somewhere. Never spent much time up that way so maybe someone who sees this can give me an idea of where it might be. Found in a thrift market in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.

Sassy Mom!

Urban Dictonary describes the hair flip as “The act of flipping one’s hair over one’s shoulder to convey a dismissive sentiment, acknowledge a compliment, or assert one’s sassy nature”. What happened to the covered porch in America? It needs to make a revival. No other information provided. According to Lost Gallery, “This is called a “Deckled” edge print. This is dye cut stock paper for standard prints used by many photo shops in the fifties and sixties”. Found in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
