Voices of the Night

Found this to be oddly unnerving. Known as the “Peacock Series” of postcards, a complete story of the company and the man behind it can be read here. Found in a thrift market in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Ethel the Mule

No idea where this photograph is from. Looks like the 1950s from the vehicle. Found in a thrift shop in Rogers, Arkansas.

Danger…Keep Out

This well behaved youngster takes their job seriously by guarding what looks to be a greenhouse or possibly a zoo exhibit with a double-barrel shotgun. “Fritz” won’t be stealing any of our state secrets as long as this whippersnapper has a say in the matter. I’m presuming this is somewhere around the 1940s. No other information is provided on the image. Found in a thrift store in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Children are creepy

Nothing is more unnerving than children in creepy masks. At first, I believed this to be Raggedy Ann masks but now I’ve been told they are Little Lulu masks. It is very unusual to find photographs this interesting in junk and thrift shops. One of my favorites. Look at those two-tone shoes. No information provided on the back. Date unknown. Found in a thrift store in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
