Missions of Conversion…

The light leaks, fading and overall look of the slide makes this incredibly surreal. The unfinished building adds to the sense of anxiety. Somewhere out West. No other information available at this time. 35mm slide. 1960s. Found in a junk shop in Summers, Arkansas.

Phillips 66

Stand By Your Man…

He certainly looks like a feller you wouldn’t wanna cross. This is an 8×10….yes, an 8×10. How could I not pick this up? The only thing that could make this “treasure-of-a-find” any better would be a gold foiled Olan Mills stamp on it. But, I guess we can’t have everything. Found and quickly purchased in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Elderberry Inn

The Elderberry Inn – K.C. Steer Steak Dinners. I searched for information on the internet about this place but like the photograph itself, it provided no clue(s) to the origins of this image. Do you know? Close inspection reveals the dark dressed woman bottle feeding a deer. Looks to be the 1940s. Found in a thrift store in Fayetteville, 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.

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.

A White Sport Coat

A good guess of the date of this photograph would be late 1950s or early 1960s. This lady with the fabulous hair looks to be the same in the post Lady and Dog. This was part of a large collection of a family found in a thrift store at Eureka Springs in late 2018. No other information provided.

Granny Goes Fishing

I wasn’t able to make out the words before the date on this one. Can’t tell if it is a name of a town or the individual. Could be March, as in the month. Obviously, the date was 1963. Anyway, looks like Granny slayed a mess of Crappie…and thems good eatin’. Found in a thrift shop in Lincoln, Arkansas.
