Three Girl Pyramid: 1957

Three Girl Pyramid: 1957

One cold February night your webmaster was faced with a choice: Poignant sepia- tinged Lewis Hine urchin ("says 12 yrs., but it is doubtful") or a 1957 Kodachrome titled "Three Girl Pyramid." After a nanosecond of deliberation, the Oscar for Best Transparency in a 100-Year-Old Photo Blog goes to: "Three Girl Pyramid"! [Rest of the caption: "Beautiful Florida Cypress Gardens 4/5/57."] View full size.

An outstanding achievement and an outstanding photo.

Childhood Memories

This picture brings me back to vacations spent with my aunt and uncle in Orlando. My little brother actually got to ride in the speedboat that pulled the waterskiers. A memory he still looks back on fondly.

Vacation, all I ever wanted

AH! It's a balmy 37 degrees here but this lovely picture is still giving me summer fever!

Superb decision!

Superb decision!

Thank You!

The Lewis Hine urchins were getting tedious!


I'd like to thank the Academy for making a fine choice.
