Sassy Mom!

Urban Dictonary describes the hair flip as “The act of flipping one’s hair over one’s shoulder to convey a dismissive sentiment, acknowledge a compliment, or assert one’s sassy nature”. What happened to the covered porch in America? It needs to make a revival. No other information provided. According to Lost Gallery, “This is called a “Deckled” edge print. This is dye cut stock paper for standard prints used by many photo shops in the fifties and sixties”. Found in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, 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.

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.
