Vintage photos of:
June 3, 1938. Both my dad and uncle are among the students of this "whole school picture" from their rural one room schoolhouse, found in what is now Bruce County, Ontario. The identifying slate was certainly an aid to dating it! View full size
I bought this in a thrift shop for $8. As soon as I saw this woman, I couldn't take my eyes off of her. Her portrait is large and very fragile (brittle). She's most likely from Missouri. The detail on her lace collar is chalky white and was drawn on her portrait. Other than "2030 Oak" written on the back, no other identifying info exists. View full size.

I believe this was taken in Ankara, my father was stationed in Turkey during his tenure in the army. On the back it says "Public building decorated for the 40th year since the revolution." Picture of Mustafa Ataturk. I'm hoping I can find more of my dad's pictures from Turkey. View full size.
I found this photo in between pages in my grandmother's yearbook from Hollywood High School 1933, back of the photo is captioned Traffic Squad, though I am not sure exactly what that means. Despite it being from Hollywood High School, I don't recognize anyone famous. View full size.
This picture is probably from the early 1900's depicting my grandmother or great grandmother and her family working on the farm. View full size.
