Girls in dressup

Don't know any information on this photo. It appears to be a classroom and not day to day wear for the girls so I'm guessing a play or something they were involved in. All pretty cute though. Has a postcard back but nothing written on it.

Glyndon,Minnesota Garage

This pic was from an album I bought on Ebay from Glyndon. A group of fourth graders had put it together as a kind of salute to thier town. No date but my guess is the early 1920's. This picture is one of the reasons I wanted it, showing the old gas pump. The town had two garages but the other showed just the building, no pumps or cars. Most of the pictures are not too remarkable but the album is well put together, overall a good job for the kids.

I posted the gent with the milk wagon and here as if it were taken by the same photographer is a laundry wagon, I suppose home pick up and delivery laundry service.

Another Kodak

A Kodak for those of us on a slightly tighter budget. There is one even cheaper, the Brownie 1 for just a dollar not including the accesories.

don't know why but the one pic didn't make it to the post.


Keeping with the thread of my last post again a look inside the home, this one a gent reading his newspaper. The other is a page out of a catalogue that came today, one that I bought on Ebay. The catalogue is neat to me, from 1911 listing all the Kodak camera's available with prices and accessories. If there is any interest I could post more from this, lots of different cameras and related stuff but most pics are like this, hand drawn. Only a couple of pictures in it. I've got the book to look at so if no one is eager to see more I wont go to the bother of scanning it all to show here but if anyone wants to see it I wouldn't mind scanning more.
