Unknown Family 1920's Train Station

This snapshot was probably taken in the 1920's judging on the fashion: there appear to be cloche hats on a few of the ladies (some with wider brims than others), short hair, and low-waisted dresses. There are no names on the photograph, but this looks like a family to me, particularly the three children in front.

If you know who these people may be, let us know in the comments!

Unknown 1860's Girl Hand-Tinted

This was an interesting find. I'm almost certain it's from the 1860's, judging on the gold border style and the little girl's clothing. The girl's dress has been tinted yellow, and her cheeks and the tablecloth her arm is resting on are both pink. Sadly, there is no name or photographer given anywhere on the photograph.

Clifford Holley, Eira Thomas, Trevor Ward Abertaf Infant School 1926

This is a unique photograph of the 1926 class from the Abertaf Infant School in Wales. It was taken by George Holdsworth and Sons, who owned the Scholastic Photo Specialists of Hartlepool. This particular photo was owned by Clifford Holley, who is pictured here. The names written at the bottom are very hard to read.


"From top, 2 row- 8th is Eira (Thomas)
3 row 4th is Trevor Ward
9th is Clifford Holley
10 is ????? ?????"

Unknown 1922 Girl with Cat

I had to buy this snapshot of a girl with her kitty- I'm a cat lover! This is dated 1922. Unfortunately, there is no name or location given. The girl is standing in front of a barn.

Ralph Harper February 1924

This young man is Ralph Harper. According to the back of the photograph, this picture was taken on February 3rd, 1924. The boy is standing on a side-walk next to what looks like some sort of wooden bridge. Perhaps he is in a park? Sadly, there is no location given on the photo.

Pa and Uncle Jason 1860's-70's Emporia, Kansas

This is someone's Pa and his brother, Jason, though no last names are found. This photograph is from about the 1860's or 70's. The older boy (Jason?) is sitting on a chair with long tassels along the bottom and there appears to be a posing stand behind the other boy. The photo was taken by N.F. Ames of 170 Commercial Street, Emporia, Kansas.
