They vowed to always stay together


This photo was extremely damaged, but I couldn’t see this great
photo not seeing the light of day because of it. So I worked on restoring
it until it was decent enough to post. Wonderful image of three pretty young
girls in their winter gear. 1940’s

the ladies at their high school or college. 1940’s

Under the cherry moon


Amazing image of a young couple on a moon prop with
a starry background. Perfect studio props for young
sweethearts, 1940’s.

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.

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.
