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 […]

1940s xmas

Dec. 25, 1948 – A Warm Holiday This week’s Throwback Thursday is a vintage photograph taken on Christmas Day in 1948. It looks like it was a warm holiday for the well dressed couple. She isn’t wearing a sweater or jacket as she stands in front of a palm tree. Her dress is amazing and his tie is equally stunning. Unfortunately even though the back of the photo is dated there is no other information to give us an idea […]

1940s barbara

1940s Wishing you the Best of Luck This week’s photo is of a young woman posing possibly for a graduation or debutante photograph in the 1940s. Written on the photo are the words “Wishing You the Best of Luck Barbara.” We don’t know if the woman’s name is Barbara or if that is the person whom she is writing the message to. It could be read either way. The photography studio information at right is the part I was able […]

1940s woman on stoop

1940s Woman on a Stoop This Throwback Thursday brings us another nameless, location-less vintage beauty. While we can date this photo to the 1940s by her clothing, hair, and shoes, we just don’t know anything more. I personally love the way she is framed by the shadow. And I have to laugh because only at third glance did I finally see the child that is seated next to her that was cropped out of the frame. Wonder what the story […]

1945 vintage bride

1945 Vintage Bride On this unseasonably warm (sorry east coast it’s in the 70s here) February day, one day before Valentine’s Day I’ve chosen a vintage bride to be our Throwback Thursday beauty. While we don’t know her name, we can place the photo to Albuquerque, NM. The back of the photo is stamped with the photo lab information that printed the photo. It reads, “Camera Shop of New Mexico Nov 2, 1945 Albuquerque, New Mexico.” She’s a beautiful bride; […]

1940s woman Ila

1940s Portrait of Ila This week for Throwback Thursday #tbt we meet Ila. Based on her hairstyle I’m dating this to sometime in the 1940s. There is no other information on this vintage photograph. I just love her hair. I wish I could pull off the same look without looking like a poodle. Time for some more practice on 1940s hair. If you too are interested in reproducing 1940s hair, this book has become my bible on the topic. 1940s Hairstyles by […]

1940s woman and dog

1940s Woman with her Loyal Dog This week’s Throwback Thursday (#tbt) brings you a 1940s lady and her dog. Don’t you just love her suit and her hair? Her dog is even sporting a fancy harness. Unfortunately this vintage photograph gives us little information. The only thing written in pencil on the back is the year “1940.” We’ll take a stab and say she’s most likely not in New Mexico due to the abundant green grass at the very bottom […]

Vintage Photograph – 2014.1


1940s vintage woman

This is beginning of what we hope will be a regular blog post every Thursday for Throwback Thursday (#tbt). The hope is to shine light on discarded vintage photographs of women. The images will have all been found photos, scanned and shared online for (most likely) the first time. 1940s Beauty Isn’t she beautiful? She was recently found in an Albuquerque antique mall. This hand-colored photo is straight out of the 1940s. There is no information on the back of the […]
