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 […]

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 […]

1920s girls

1910s/1920s Have a Seat Pull up a window, rest your feet and let’s chat. This seems to be what the girls are doing in today’s Throwback Thursday photo. Two friends just sitting and chatting and not too posed. The photo isn’t even in perfect focus. A very laid back photograph that could possibly be candid. No information on the back of the photo gives us any clues about the identity of the girls. The photo is most likely from the late 1910s or […]

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 […]

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 […]

1950s pinup

  1950s Bathing Beauty Pin-up Style This is such a classic vintage photograph of a lovely woman posing in her bathing suit for a home photo. Who was she posing for? Was she just out working on her tan? Or was she near a lake or beach? So many questions raised by one photo! Sadly there is no information on the back of this photo so our questions will remained unanswered. Every Throwback Thursday we share a vintage photo of […]
