Carson Spur: 1930s

Carson Spur: 1930s

tterrace helps me out once again:

On state highway 88 south of Lake Tahoe. Looks to be later than the other one in the collection. Get a load of the expression on the face of the gal on the left.

Girls after my own feet!

Those two girls are sporting my favorite footwear! I do the toe-curling, too. I wonder if they also liked to ride with their feet up on the dashboard or the back of the front seat?

Mom's pride

Looks like twins on the right, older sister with the toe grip. Female family trait: cock head when being photo'd.

Mom and the kids

The young ones all bear a strong resemblance to each other.

The Car

Looks to be a 1937 or 1938 Buick, from what I can tell.

The ubiquitous

kerchiefs.

Midriffy

I'm still just kind of gobsmacked at her belly-baring little outfit. Very cute vacation wear.

"Get a load" and "gal"

A phrase and word I associate with that period. Nice touch. And the expression on the face of the "gal" on the left is such a perfect match for her left foot. Brilliantly rich. Thanks for the share.

Feet

This family had a thing about bare feet in high elevations. I love this picture, not the least for the looming Radiator Monster.
