His old lady


1940’s image of a couple posing in front of a nature themed backdrop,
notice the tree trunk he is sitting on! The lady is wearing a pretty
dress but horrible shoes. LOL.

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.
