ON THE BOULEVARD: A HANDSOME FATHER AND HIS TWO ADORABLE KIDS ON A WALK (1966)

This snap shot photograph tells a story. It may go something like this. It is a cool winter day in France. Its 1966. A handsome father puts on his winter coat and scarf, bundles up his two adorable children, and the family goes for an enjoyable brisk walk down the boulevard. They are not alone. A number of pedestrians are occupying the sidewalk. The man and his children are well dressed and appear fairly affluent. An inscription, written in French, can be found on the reverse of the photo. Perhaps a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery will be able to translate the inscription for the rest of us. The photograph measures about 2 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

A CHAUFFEUR AND A “WOODY WAGON”

A uniformed chauffeur leans against his “woodie” station wagon. Peering out the window is a young woman, possibly, a teenager. An inscription on the reverse of the photo indicates that this snapshot was taken in 1948. The pictured automobile is called a woodie because part of the rear body is made of wood or material that resembles wood. Woodies were  popular in the United States in the 1930’s and 40’s. The wagons were made as versions of sedans as well as station wagons. Some were basic and some of these autos were luxury vehicles. Generally, they were manufactured by third party conversion companies. The last year of production of real wood construction in American station wagons was 1953. From then on, only faux wood was used. The uniformed driver and the thatched roof on the brick building may offer a hint of where this snapshot photo was taken. The previous owner of this image suggested that the photo was taken somewhere in Africa. This snapshot photograph measures about 3 1/2″ x 2 3/8″ and is in very good condition.

TWO VERY ATTRACTIVE YOUNG WOMAN EATING ICE CREAM AT A STREET FAIR IN ST ANDRE, FRANCE

This vintage snapshot features two very pretty young women eating ice cream as they stroll down a street in St. Andre, France. It appears that they may be at a street fair. These thin waisted young ladies could be fashion models. Perhaps they are? Note the Vespa motor scooter that is parked behind the woman wearing the solid color dress. That same woman, has a beautiful smile. An inscription on the reverse of the photograph indicates that the photo was taken in 1957.This snapshot photo measures about 2 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ and is in excellent condition (see scans).

FATHER GIVES DAUGHTER A RIDE ON HIS BIG JOHN DEERE TRACTOR (1948)

 

Tractor 2019-09-29 at 2.04.05 PM

This vintage snapshot photograph features a farmer and a little girl riding a large John Deere tractor. Beneath the John Deere name printed on the tractor, are the words “Made in USA”. It seems the company took pride in being an American manufacturer. The reverse of the photo has an inscription indicating the farmers name and the year it was taken (1948). Perhaps the child is the farmers daughter or granddaughter. This photograph measures about 4 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ and is in very good condition.

PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL DOING SCHOOLWORK

Screen Shot 2019-09-21 at 11.28.23 AM

The little girl seen in this photograph is absolutely adorable. The bow in her hair adds to her cuteness. She is wearing earrings and a ring. The youngster is bright eyed and appears quite studious. I believe the photograph is best described as a snapshot but I am not entirely certain. Perhaps labeling it a “vintage photograph” would suffice. It measures about 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″. I had hoped that magnifying the calendar in this photo would provide the approximate date it was taken. Unfortunately, my efforts went unrewarded. Despite the uncertainties, this image is special. This photograph is in very good condition (see scans).

A BOY AND HIS ’59 CHEVY IMPALA SPORTING A BARRY GOLDWATER SENATE CAMPAIGN SIGN (1968)

chevy 1 This snapshot photograph is an excellent piece of American social history. The image shows a young man pointing to a political poster affixed to the side of a 1959, or 1960 Chevy Impala. The sign is supporting the 1968 US Senate campaign of Barry Goldwater  (1909-1988).  Goldwater was a conservative republican from Arizona. The sign states that Goldwater “hit the floor in ’64”.  Hitting the floor is a reference to the fact that Goldwater lost the Presidential election to Lyndon B Johnson in 1964. Johnson won a landslide victory. Goldwater only won six states. The sign maker wrote “Watch our weight in ’68”, referring to Goldwater’s Senate race that year. The sign maker was predicting victory and victory is exactly what occurred. Note the car’s radio antenna. Also take note of the “Taxi” sign behind the boys left shoulder. It is interesting to note the John McCain succeeded Goldwater in the US Senate. This photograph is a perfect illustration of life in the late 1960’s. The Chevy and the boy’s attire (love the cardigan sweater), take me back to a simpler time.  (SOLD)

LITTLE GIRL SITTING ON A WINDOW LEDGE WITH MOM STANDING BEHIND HER “DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME BOYS AND GIRLS!”

This vintage snapshot photograph features a little girl sitting on a window ledge. Her mother is standing behind her squinting out the window. I think the child is in a dangerous position. She could easily fall out of the window, even if her mother is holding her. This photograph was taken in Europe by an amateur photographer. The photographer took a creative, but dangerous, photo. This snapshot measures about 2 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ and is in fair condition. It has no tears or pinholes but it is worn (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A DECORATED EUROPEAN SOLDIER, ARMED WITH A SWORD, AND STANDING IN A GARDEN

I wish I knew more about this soldier. This vintage snap shot features a European military man. My first guess is that he is a member of the French or Belgian army. I am hypothesizing that he is an officer. The evidence of his higher rank is the sword that he is carrying.  The gentleman is wearing three medals. The number 1554 appears on his hat and on his collar. Is that the number of his regiment? The soldier appears to be standing in a manicured garden. This vintage photo measures about 3 1/2″ x 4 5/8″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

THREE FRENCH SOLDIERS IN THEIR CAMP IN TRA VINH, VIETNAM

This vintage snapshot photograph features three soldiers in their camp in Tra Vinh, Vietnam. According to the inscription on the reverse of the photograph, this photo was taken in 1948. Tra Vinh is a province in the Mekong Delta. The photograph shows French troops who were engaged in battle with the Viet Minh. The men are engaged in some sort of activity. Are they cooking? Are they purifying water? I’m stumped. Two of the men are smoking cigarettes and all three look serious and exhausted. This snapshot photo measures about 3 1/2 ” x 2 3/8″ and is in very good condition.
