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 […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.12


1950s girlfriends_Claire_Sophie

1950s Girlfriends This week’s Throwback Thursday is the first out of a batch of photos featuring two or more women.  These ladies are identified on the back of the photo as Claire Lichtman and Sophie. Gauging by their clothes this snapshot was taken sometime in the 1950s. They look like some sharp dressers and close friends. Let’s take a second to notice the bold wallpaper in the background… probably not something you’d see today. It could even match the dress […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.10


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 […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.9


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 […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.6


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; […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.5


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 […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.4


1930s woman and man

  1930s Couple Dressed for a Night Out Another Throwback Thursday (#tbt) photo mystery this week as the photo gives us no clues as to the identity of the subjects or location of this photo. Based on clothing and hair we’d place this photo from the 1930s. We’re sure this elegant film noir looking couple was dressed for some occasion, perhaps an evening out on the town. Whatever the occasion was, we’d love to find a dress like hers and […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.3


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 […]
