Shadow of a man

The subject is Gerald Freeman, the gentleman in the last post. Strange image when you look at it. Did they intentionally have him stand there with his shadow or was happen-chance? No other information but his name on the back-side. Found in a thrift market in Springdale, Arkansas.

Brothers?

One would have to say, probably so. A tear print which would make this a Polaroid of some type. I’m not real familiar with those older model cameras. No other information provided. Found in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

1512 “somewhere” street

Come Springtime, looks as if Granny needs to tend to the flower garden. My grandmother’s house had the same false brick, shingle type “siding” on it. No other information provided. Found in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

How can you not like this?

Looks like kitty has determined that potted plant is now a litter box. Not a bad photograph considering direct flash and all. No other information provided. Date unknown. Found in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Just a-doin’ my job, I’m The Highway Patrol.

Macon is a small town in upper northeast Missouri. Close attention shows the gentleman with the officer to have his hand on the patrolman’s gun. The car would likely make this a photograph from the 1930s. Didn’t find much online about the Swansson Drug Store other than this link to a bottle label from that era. Did you know that the famous Elko print was from a store in Kansas City, Missouri? In the 1967 film adaptation of Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, the killers purchase a movie camera from an Elko Camera Store. This print was found in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Jim Firestone and Friends…

Jim Firestone, Doyle, Loyd, Grandpa & Daddy. (Taken in Washington). By the looks of this print, it may be a reprint from a negative or a photographic replication. Why do I say this? The Kodak Electronic Imaging paper stamp on the back. Pretty sure that was a paper that came much later than the original photograph. Date Unknown. Not the most interesting image but it was in a sealed plastic bag with others so it was scanned as well. Found in a thrift market in Springdale, Arkansas.
