Pets endure

What I find most heartwarming about these photos of pets, be it 50 or 100 years ago, is that they were taken in the pre-digital era, at a time when the idea of "not wasting film" was not so far fetched. They mattered -- enough to be documented in photos.

Although they pass through our lives in a blink, their impact endures, just like these photos. Every time I see one, I am reminded that someone loved them.

What a wonderful testament to our faithful companions.

Almost Spring

In this latest showcase of the glories of Kodachrome and Hubert's camera chops we can see earth beneath the snow and imagine Spring is just around the corner. And we (except for Minnesotans, who know better) would be wrong:

Distance Still Speaks

So bittersweet, a vanished world from 60+ years ago yet looking so vivid. Hope you had a good life, Brownie!


Hi! My name's Brownie. Squirrel!


What has impressed me the most about these "Minnesota Kodachromes," whether they be indoors or out, is the pure serenity of the scenes: families together and enjoying each other's company, snow scenes with cars, and dogs, beautiful gardens etc.

These folks lived a blessed life!

Dog names

So many dogs named Brownie and Blackie back in the 40's and 50's. I suppose children named the dogs. Today's dogs are named Bella, Charlie, Lucy, and Bailey.

Waiting for Sally?

Brownie is clearly anticipating some excitement.

Forgot to mention

I just break down and cry when I see most of these "Minnesota Kodachromes". Tears of Joy! Many Thanks!

Did Brownie ever meet Sally?

What a great photo of Brownie! Could Brownie and Sally have been friends?
