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.

Iron Works and Style…

Always amazed at the style during America’s prime. Things had an elegance about them that is all but gone, for the most part, these days. Built to last and made here in America. We had a lot of pride in our craftsmen, laborers and designers. Maybe it will make a comeback. Date unknown but it is an older one. Found in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

James Scott Memorial Fountain

Detroit, Michigan. The back has the date May 30, 1949 (*)sle. The asterisk is a tear and not legible but an educated guess would be Belle Isle (a Detroit City Park). Found in a thrift market in Prairie Grove, Arkansas.

It Never Rains In…Tustin, California?

The image is not skewed in any way. A poorly manufactured print, this happened on occasion in those days. I’m guessing with a certain degree of confidence this is 1930s. Here is the real mystery – What the words actually say on the back of the photograph. The second-to-last letter is defiantly an “o” but was this a grammar error on part of the author? The closest city, area or what-not found was Tustin, California. A real Scooby Doo mystery. Jeenkies! Found in a thrift shop in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Houston, we have lift off!

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.
