Vintage photos of:
Cadillac circa 1907. Occupants and location unknown. View full size.
Another picture of some Shorpian instant relatives. Found in a southern Indiana junk, er, "antique mall," the only identification is "Mr & Mrs Davers," as near I can make out. Well worth the dollar, huh? View full size.
The kids' table in my mother's newly remodeled kitchen in Mount Airy, North Carolina. I'm the girl on the right. It's either Thanksgiving or Christmas 1966. Kitchen is still the same except the oven door was replaced with a white one sometime in the 1980s. Kodachrome slide. View full size.
That's me with my parents at the North-South Carolina border in 1961. Dad was being transferred to Parris Island, S.C., from Camp Lejeune, N.C., to begin his first tour as a Marine Corps drill instructor. View full size.
An "instant relative". She was photographed by a Wantage, Oxfordshire photographer named Tom Reveley. The back of the picture contains the information: "Williams Mill St." View full size.
My uncle apparently took this Kodachrome as part of a photography class or maybe his own independent study. I'm guessing early 50's. View full size.
