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.
Aesthetically, a very good photograph. Focused, rich in tone and contrast. You don’t find many photographs that are this nice. If one looks closely, they will see a small baby doll between the fuel pumps. Found in a thrift market in Springdale, Arkansas. No information provided other than what can be seen on the front. One Dollar for 3.5 gallons of fuel! There seems to be a Stone Mountain “neighborhood” just east of Fayetteville that may have been a township type thing back in the day. Other than that, all that can be found with a search of the internet is – of course – Stone Mountain, Georgia. I’m sure there are hundreds of “Stone Mountains” throughout the country. The world may never know.
The words “AF Museum” are found on the back of this old photograph. Air Force would be the only explanation that comes to mind. Would like to say this is a 1950s image but it can’t be verified. Found in a thrift store in Rogers, Arkansas.
The plate on the vintage Pontiac says ’48. So, it would be a very good guess this was taken in 1948. The vehicle, by all accounts, is a 1941 Pontiac Torpedo and the bumper implores you to “See Beautiful Wonder Cave” in Monteagle, Tennessee. The Indiana plates are 864 369. Here is a very throughout web page describing the county history and cave. No other information on the photograph itself. Found in a thrift shop in Northwest, Arkansas.
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.
