Rooftop Antics


Two young girls clowning around on a city rooftop in their swinsuits.
I believe these two girls are Puerto Ricans that lived in uptown
Manhattan or the Bronx in the late 1930’s or early 40’s.

Class of 1939


A graduating class from a 1930’s county technical school, not sure if this was some
kind of all black high school back in bygone days.

Capturing baby


Cute little girl, I love how they made her hold the little blow-up elephant and
the placement of the bow in her hair. This pose and scenery is not
so different from what they do today. Probably 1930’s.

Innocents with a smile


Adorable portrait of a young african american girl with a fancy polka-dot
ruffled sleeve dress. Gorgeous, considering hair style, dress and
texture of the image looks like the late 1930’s.

Family Out and About


I love vintage candid images, it gives you a natural feel to that
particular era and you can also glean some great scenery, which give you more
respective of what things really looked like back then. Fabulous image
of a 1930’s family.

He’s not feeling it


This little boy was so adorable, but he was not feeling that photobooth.
Maybe little man was just tired. This image is absolutely precious
and look at the way he is dressed. So sharp. Thinking circa 1930’s
or early 1940’s

Fashionable Youth of the 1940’s


Beautiful image of two young couples in the 1940’s. Looks like late 40’s
since their fashions lean more toward the early 50’s. Check the Flare skirt
and cuffed jeans. Super fashionable.
