1930s girls

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? Unfortunately, the photograph gives us no clues as to the identities of the girls. Every Throwback Thursday we share a vintage photograph of a woman (or group of women) and try to figure out her (their) back story. See you all next week! CHECK OUT PAST WEEK’S LOVELY […]

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 […]

1920s young girls

1932 Young Girls Today’s Throwback Thursday brings us back to 1932, for the second week in a row. The photograph was printed March 28, 1932 as indicated by a stamp on the back that also reads “A Briliantone Print.” The young girls are Martha Howard (at left) and Shirley Garviga? Yes, that question mark is written on the back of the photo too. The spelling of Shirley’s last name is very hard to read and I’m guessing the writer was just unsure. Unfortunately […]

1932 may 1

May 1, 1932 I couldn’t decide which vintage photograph to feature today for Throwback Thursday, but then I flipped over the photos and the choice was obvious. The photo above was taken on May 1, 1932, which just happens to be 82 years ago to the date. The lovely young ladies in the photo are Betty Davis and Sophie Dubb. Every Throwback Thursday we share a vintage photograph of a woman (or group of women) and try to figure out […]

1930s girlfriends bus

1930s Traveling GIRLFRIENDS Today’s Throwback Thursday showcases two spirited ladies who may have been on an adventure! I love how fun they are and how one seems to be either making the other smile or pointing out her friends’ wide grin. The bus behind them dates to the 1930s and that correlates to the clothing they are wearing as well. Now this is just a shot in the dark but perhaps they were traveling or on a tour. The back of […]
