The soft spoken type


Lovely image of a beautiful well dressed young woman! Probably late
1930’s or early 1940’s. Love her jewelry and the elegant silk dress.
Nothing but class!

the jazz singer


Interesting image of a 1930’s effeminate carbaret singer and his
pianist performing a club. Check the hankie he’s holding
and the full beat face.

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.
