An interesting set of "everyday" photos from the past. (These are the pictures I was telling you about for tomorrow night)


The rural kids in the 50’s rode bikes to school. You took whatever path was best for you. This lad looks like he is carrying a string of Christmas lights, but it doesn’t look like winter. Wonder what’s going on!

Camping out in 1918

This couple pose in an early version of American Gothic, with a groundhog killed on their Manchester farm. It's dinner!
Note: Photo taken circa 1914, from a family photo album.

Standing over one of her many trophy mule deer, subsistence-and-sport huntress “Gusty” Wallihan appears every inch the frontier matron with her dressy bonnet, prairie-pattern cartridge belt, floral-embroidered gauntlets, hunting knife, and Remington-Hepburn rifle. 1895

At least this one won’t be quite as dangerous as the old single wheeled models.  Look in the trailer over the back wheel. They have their baby in there!

This was the approved way to change the street lamps in 1910.

A single Paddy Wagon. Never knew they had such a vehicle!

Here is an early motorhome, built in 1926. I think this is so very cool looking! I’m surprised the light chassis would handle it.

We’ve all been aware of the traditional tent wagon.  This is a tent vehicle built in 1910.

These are vintage treadmills in the 1920’s.

This is a 1920’s refrigerator.  Only the elite could afford such a thing, and most still had the old ice boxes.

A hair dryer in the 1920 Salon.

Chester E. Macduffee next to his newly patented, 250 kilo diving suit, 1911

A postcard from the 1800’s advertising a knife throwing act with the traveling circus. How would you like that job?

A Strongwoman balances a piano and the pianist on her chest. 1920. That’s some chest that can do that!

London, in the 1920’s, this was a telephone engineer. What a job!

Two young girls in a West Germans street chat with their grandparents in the window of their home in the Eastern sector, separated only by a barbed wire barricade. It was a common occurrence for families, who had once only lived on the opposite side of the street from one another, to become separated by the ever growing Berlin Wall.

A Gibson Girl in her corset in the early 1900’s. Those poor women. This was one fad that really hurt a lot of women for life.

Lillian Russell. A plus size beauty in the late 1800s. She was around 200 lb at the peak of her career. She was considered "The American Beauty."  Weighwatchers would want to enroll her today!
