Missions of Conversion…

The light leaks, fading and overall look of the slide makes this incredibly surreal. The unfinished building adds to the sense of anxiety. Somewhere out West. No other information available at this time. 35mm slide. 1960s. Found in a junk shop in Summers, Arkansas.

The Scimitar

The cars are definitely 1960s and possibly 1970s models. The two old guys, with flags, are both wearing a fez. Hard to tell if this is a parade, a funeral procession or something more nefarious. No other information on the photograph. Found in a thrift store in Northwest Arkansas.

MAGDEBURG – IMO 5217036

If I’m not mistaken, this ship is the MS Magdeburg. This web page has some very good information on this vessel here. Looks as if it was a German cargo ship that was manufactured in 1952 and decommissioned in 1971? Ah, the internet. What an amazing thing. A 35mm slide, probably mid-to-late 1960s, found in a thrift store in Tontitown, Arkansas.

A White Sport Coat

A good guess of the date of this photograph would be late 1950s or early 1960s. This lady with the fabulous hair looks to be the same in the post Lady and Dog. This was part of a large collection of a family found in a thrift store at Eureka Springs in late 2018. No other information provided.

Granny Goes Fishing

I wasn’t able to make out the words before the date on this one. Can’t tell if it is a name of a town or the individual. Could be March, as in the month. Obviously, the date was 1963. Anyway, looks like Granny slayed a mess of Crappie…and thems good eatin’. Found in a thrift shop in Lincoln, Arkansas.

Tygard Tripp 4H

Probably early-to-mid 1960s. Color Slide. This appears to be an image from the small town of Butler, Missouri. The signs on the parade float say Tygard Tripp 4H. Tygard and Tripp are found on Google Maps as former schools? Found in a thrift store in Tontitown, Arkansas.
