Vintage Photograph 2014.27 – 1945 Cowgirls


1945 cowgirls

1945 Cowgirls Six lovely ladies in their western wear sit perched on a fence in today’s Throwback Thursday photograph. Their plaid shirts, hats, and high waisted jeans make these ladies look like they mean business on the ranch. One lady is wearing saddle shoes though, which makes me wonder if this was just a weekend trip to a ranch for this group of friends or if that one lady was just out of place. Overall this photograph just makes me […]

Manhattan – TV Series


Manhattan-Cast-Image_Final__140515163404

Manhattan is a new TV series that airs this Sunday (July 27, 2014) on WGN America. It was filmed in Santa Fe, NM, just one hour north of Albuquerque. Set in Los Alamos, NM, in 1943, the show tells the story of the people behind New Mexico’s involvement in the building of the first atomic bomb and the secrets they had to keep – from everyone. Set in Los Alamos, N.M., at the Manhattan Project during the race to build the world’s first […]

1940s picnic

1940s Picnic This has to be one of my favorite vintage photographs found thus far. The scan here does not do the print justice. The composition and the natural light are just stunning. I would guess who ever took this photo was pretty skilled with the camera. So now let’s look at the photo a little closer. The woman on the left has her hair tied up and appears to be wearing a playsuit. If you look really closely at their […]

1940s bathing palm

1940S Bathing Beauty with Palm Tree Bathing Suit This lovely palm tree lady is our Throwback Thursday snapshot of the day on this hot hot week. My mother found this vintage photograph in an antique mall and I’ve been saving it for a prime time summer appearance. We have no clues as to her location, but who cares! We’re highly distracted by her marvelous palm tree bathing suit! I mean how amazing is it?! I believe I may have found a […]

1930s Girls It’s Throwback Thursday! We missed a week last Thursday, sorry about that! Today we bring you a photo of two girls from the 1930s. Don’t you just love their dresses?

1939 couple

1939 Couple Printed on April 16, 1939, today’s throwback Thursday vintage photograph shows a woman laughing at possibly what the man next to her has just said. We won’t know for sure if they were a couple, but it seems like they were getting along well enough if even they weren’t. The photograph captures a lovely little moment between these two. The stamp on the back of the photo reads “Crystal White Print APR 16, 1939 by Nosset.” Most likely the […]

1940s women

1940s Ladies This is a great photo of two women in the 1940s. Their hair and clothes are most definitely 40s. As an avid collector of 1940s dresses, I love the dress on the right. The 1940s saw a lot of that kind of novelty print in the fashion. I wish the photo had a date, or place, or names on the back, but alas it does not. The backdrop looks like New Mexico, but we won’t know for sure. Every Throwback […]

1950s bar

Don’t Fall Off These two ladies from the 1950s look like they were having a grand time one night! Hopefully they were able to stay balanced on their stools while enjoying some good laughter. It appears that they are seated at a bar, possibly at a social hall of sorts. There is no information on the back of this photo unfortunately. Every Throwback Thursday we share a vintage photograph of a woman (or group of women) and try to figure out her (their) back […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.20


1940s sophie claire both

Claire & Sophie in Annapolis, Md This week’s Throwback Thursday is a set of photos. They were both taken the same day as evidenced by their clothes. I believe Claire Barsky and Sophie, wearing the metallic looking dress, were hanging out around the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., based on the building behind them in the photo to the left. That building appears to be Bancroft Hall, which is currently the largest single dormitory in the world (according to wikipedia). In […]
