Cute as a button


The doll-like quality of this little girl is amazing, from her bonnet
down to her little buster brown shoes. 1940’s.

Lillie’s Chicken Shack


Great 1940s image of a nice size crowd in a bar/eatery Lillie’s Chicken
Shack. Based on all the military guys present, it looks like
‘the shack’ is doubling as an NCO club.

What are they up to?


A group of young kids playing in a front yard, looking mischievous, especially the
girl on the right. Did bebe kids exist back then? I think so.

Studious Innocence


Lovely young girl, seated and holding a book for her photo shoot. I love
these photos that are shot outside with a simple back drop, they just
seem more organic to me and of course these types of shots helped early
photographers with lighting issues.
