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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Vintage Photographs 2014.14

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 […]

1937 girlfriends sophie_edit

1937 GIRLFRIENDS This week’s Throwback Thursday is another vintage photograph of two girlfriends. These ladies are identified on the back of the photo as Ruth Bindes and Sophie. The year is marked as 1937 in the upper right back corner. This photo was in rough condition when I got it so I decided to test my photoshop skills and took some time to restore it today. The above photo is after quite a bit of work. I could have done […]

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 […]
