Mystery tissue paper order for dolls?This 4 page tissue paper copy of an order (I assume) for a lot of dolls has been in my attic for many years.  It was found in a throw-away cardboard suitcase found by me probably in the late 60's or early 70's as I made trips to the library and the park with m...

Homecoming Royalty in Searcy ArkansasHow thrilled folks were, way back then, to have their pictures in the newspaper.  This old clipping has spent many years in an attic or two (date is somewhere around 1964) so it is probably not as clear as we'd like it to be.  But it is good that the names are...

WOW!How did they get the picture to look like this?  This was a long time ago, approximately in the 70's, when no one had tricky cell phones that do amazing things.  The young man was in the tree and another young man took the picture.  I stumbled upon it the other day and was once again stunned ...

Loaded downThis car has to bring memories to lots of people.  What did we call those things that covered back tires?   Hubby, the retired car dealer, says "fender skirts."  But he says he sees no seams so perhaps this car was just made that way.  And were those things  at the back called tail fin...

Santa is Smokin'!In more than one way.  He is wide-eyed and ready to jump in the sleigh.....PLUS.....he is smoking a pipe!  I collect Santas in a small way and got this one from an estate sale a few days ago.  I didn't think much about what he was doing but once I put him in the herd, he stood ou...

Elizabeth Gertrude DurhamThe pretty girl on the left was named Elizaeth Gertrude Durham and I think the girl on the right was her sister.  The picture dates back, way back, and the girls are dressed in very pretty and fancy outfits.  The hair styles appear the same with a huge bow at the back.Eli...

Rare FindThese are so old that they are difficult to read but I finally got a good picture of the two so you can also see and read them.  They are full of interesting information.  First, the newer one is called a DOG TAX .  It was good for one year, I assume, and would have to be renewed......mo...

1948 is the date on the photograph.Could it be a new tractor?  Could he be showing it off?  Something about this picture interested me because you see a lot of guys and gals beside their automobiles but not many beside or on their tractors.  Perhaps some of you will know what kind of tractor it w...

Beloved bicycles.I love old pictures as readers know.  I also can't understand why some families don't cherish their old snapshots of family.  The top picture above is an unknown person......cast aside by family who didn't want the old photos.  He seems to be so proud of his bicycle and it, as my...
