Mr and Mrs R.L. Evans 1888, New Port, Rhode Island

This is Mr and Mrs R.L. Evans, a young couple who are sitting for a picture in Chattanooga, Tenn. According to writing on the back, Mr Evans is 21 years old and Mrs Evans is only 18. This photo was badly damaged, so I tried cleaning it up on photoshop, though its still not perfect.

If you know who this couple may be, let us know in the comments!

Patriotic Young Women 1940's

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a picture that fit this week's Sepia Saturday prompt. I did, however, find a picture of two patriotic young women posing in front of a service flag. Originally used in the First World War, service flags became popular again in the Second and were hung in the windows of those with family serving in the war. Each blue star represented a family member fighting, and each gold star represented family members who had died during service.  They are still used today.

To all my fellow Americans, Happy 4th of July!

And if you know who these two ladies may be, let us know in the comments!
