HAUNTING PHOTOGRAPH OF NORTH AFRICAN MAN AND HIS DAUGHTER

refugee This photograph of a North African man and his daughter is one of the most moving photos that I have ever seen. This image pulls at my heart strings and won’t let go. I know very little about the story behind this photo. I assume that we are looking at a father and daughter. Each is displaying an expression of grave concern. In fact, they look traumatized. The previous owner of this photograph stated that the photo was taken in North Africa during a time of war. The image is a snapshot and measures about 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″. The photograph is in very good condition (see scans).

AFRICAN AMERICAN LITTLE GIRL BASKING IN THE SUNLIGHT

This snapshot features an African American little girl asking in the sunlight. She has a lovely smile. The child is wearing a sailor outfit and has a bow in her hair. She is standing on a cement sidewalk in front of a large building. Note her shadow, which appears on the column behind her. Judging by the architecture, this photo was likely taken in a city or a large town.  The photograph measures about 4 1/4″ x 2 1/2″.

MEET THE PIN BOYS: OCCUPATIONAL SNAPSHOT TAKEN AT A BOWLING ALLEY

 

This snapshot captures three pin boys as they work at a bowling alley. Pin boys, also known as pin setters were stationed in a sunken area of a bowling alley which was located behind the pins. The pin boy removed pins after they were knocked down, replaced pins each frame, and returned the bowlers ball. The day of pin boys is long over as automation and computers became employed in bowling alleys. At least two of the young men in this photo are smoking while they are working. The pin boys are wearing tee shirts, presumably because they were exerting themselves in a hot environment. Being a pin boy doesn’t look like a fun job.

MEET THE NIGHT CREW: THREE MILITARY RADIOMEN IN HAWAII

radar

Three handsome military men pose in front of the radio shack for this snapshot portrait. The soldiers look like their having a great time. The man in the middle has a cigarette hanging out of his mouth. He looks like he’s playing a part in a World War II movie. Judging by the inscription on the reverse of the photograph, these guys are not in a war zone. In fact, the use of the word “Aloha” probably indicates that they are located in Hawaii. They are likely radiomen who worked the night shift which is logical since they are posing by the “Radio Night Crew’ sign seen above the shack’s door. This photograph was likely inscribed to, and sent to, “Arnolds” girlfriend. Along with the snapshot, the inscriber sent his “smiles” and “love and kisses”.
