Baptist Mission

Although I think a majority of people were descent folks and thought they were doing the right thing, it still breaks your heart to see images from the past where very powerful people wanted to erase the native peoples culture and roots. Never was much for religion myself. 35mm slide. 1960s. Found in a junk shop in Summers, 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.

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.
