Don’t I Look Ambitious

Stopping and browsing at a local yard sale about a year ago, I picked up a copy of Alcoholics Anonymous and found the attached photo. It was probably taken overseas during World War II. At first, I thought it was in the tropics, but the landscape belies that. Perhaps it was taken @ a US … Continued

A Dapper Young Man

I found this picture in the Loew’s Theater parking lot on a rainy evening in September. He was looking up at me, so handsome and Victorian, and I had to save him from being completely destroyed. The photo is mounted on cardboard, and “Bergman’s Photograph Gallery, Louisville, KY” is printed on the back. The carboard … Continued

Eurotrip

I found a series of black & white photos from a thrift store going out of business.

Bertha and Mom

Found this old school small square black and white photo of “Bertha and Mom” (so it states on the back) while walking to work the other day at the corner of S. Charles St. and Ostend St. in Federal Hill, Baltimore. It was in the gutter and had been driven over numerous times, but when … Continued

I’m guessing it was taken in the late ’60s and I couldn’t find any information about it besides a scrap of paper taped to it that read “Mung Dispenser.” That’s a whole lot of mung.

Army Dudes

Found on a sidewalk several years ago; no idea who they are, but the Mussolini poster in the background is a nice touch!

Friends at 14,000 Ft.

Last June my husband and I drove to Colorado from Virginia for our anniversary. We drove up Pike’s Peak one day, and at the top of the mountain I noticed this picture blowing around on the ground beside the viewing area. It was very windy, snowy and icy, and I was lucky to catch it … Continued

Just Kids Being Kids

Found amongst the school yearbook department’s discards last year.

Waist High

These pictures came in a batch of photos developed at a drug store in the early 60′s.
