Vintage Photograph 2014.24


1930s girls

1930s Girls It’s Throwback Thursday! We missed a week last Thursday, sorry about that! Today we bring you a photo of two girls from the 1930s. Don’t you just love their dresses? Unfortunately, the photograph gives us no clues as to the identities of the girls. Every Throwback Thursday we share a vintage photograph of a woman (or group of women) and try to figure out her (their) back story. See you all next week! CHECK OUT PAST WEEK’S LOVELY […]

1950s bar

Don’t Fall Off These two ladies from the 1950s look like they were having a grand time one night! Hopefully they were able to stay balanced on their stools while enjoying some good laughter. It appears that they are seated at a bar, possibly at a social hall of sorts. There is no information on the back of this photo unfortunately. Every Throwback Thursday we share a vintage photograph of a woman (or group of women) and try to figure out her (their) back […]

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 […]

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 […]

1920s girlfriends

1920s GIRLFRIENDS Throwback Thursday brings us a vintage photograph of six young girls from the 1920s. Their drop waist and very straight dresses and their cropped bobs tell us the photo is from some time in the 20s. Unfortunately that’s all we’ll learn about these girls as there’s no information on the back of the photograph. Every Throwback Thursday we share a vintage photograph of a woman (or group of women) and try to figure out her back story. See […]

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 […]
