Vintage Photograph 2014.28 – 1940s Dancers


1940s dancers

1940s Dancers After a few weeks of end-of-summer hiatus we’re back to dancing this week! We can’t wait! This photo of a group of dancers from the 1940s seemed appropriate for today’s Throwback Thursday. There are some names on the back but I have to admit I can’t decipher the handwriting. We’re happy to be back and working on new routines! Wish us luck as we get back into dancer shape and work on some high kicks and fast dance […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Vintage Photographs 2014.14


eva_3

Member Feature: Eva When we came up with the idea of Throwback Thursday featuring vintage photographs every week we also realized it gave our troupe members a chance to dig through their family history and find photos to share. This is our first member feature. Eva just happens to be celebrating her birthday today and took the time to dig out some old photos of her family. So let’s wish Eva a very happy birthday and meet her family! These first […]

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 […]
