Since I posted the last crop of photos, I decided it was time to make good on my threats to get organized - at least where pictures are concerned. For the last 2-3 days, I have sorted, labelled and dated over 1,000 photos, and I am not done yet. (Can anyone tell me how the typeface can change like that when I did nothing to make it happen? What an aggravation that is!)
The top photo is another unknown - but what happy little cuties they were. And look at the filagree border around the pic. Isn't it great? Years ago there was a restaurant here in Raleigh named Ragamuffins. Their logo was three such kids, and I suspect had they seen this photo, they would have used it. I did note something even funnier in it. There is a saying: "You must be a red-neck if you have upholstered furniture on your porch". I guess they did it in the 20's and 30's too....LOL.
The picnic looks like fun, and again, I have no clue as to the identity of anyone in the pic. You have to laugh at the guy in the three-piece-suit, complete with tie and hat. Did they always dress up for picnics back in the day? It must have been nice sitting in a field of daisies.
The handsome guy below is my paternal grandfather (adoptive). Love the hair parted in the middle (not). My mom always said that men who parted their hair down the middle looked like "Ned in the First Reader". That was her elementary school book, and Ned was the main character. Too bad she didn't keep a copy of that!
This is the flip side of the portrait. I am always fascinated by the calligraphy and graphics used in those days. Certainly nothing current is even remotely as attractive.
During the next several weeks, I will be posting more of these, and I hope you will enjoy them. I might even sneak in an old pic or two of me (which I'm sure you're dying to see....LOL).
