I’ve had this postcard for awhile but I just haven’t had the time to post it- so here it finally is!. It is from Tamaulipas, Mexico.
Circa late 1900
There are a lot of photos of this particular women in a lot of photos I bought a very long time ago, some of the photos you’ve seen. I love her fashion sense, she seems to have enjoyed it herself.
Polaroid, circa 1920’s
Hello again everyone,
Sorry again for my absence. Its been a difficult semester and my collection is wearing thin so I’ve also been on a hunt for more vintage. This handsome guy is my recent purchase from this seller on ebay to whom I completely recommend. The shipping came with a tracking number and the photo came so well packaged it even came with acid free tissue paper that made my inner curator heart soar.
This photo is the third tin type I own but the first with a bit of color on the cheeks. Not to mention that great goatee.
The item was found in a Philadelphia estate, circa 1880-90
I bought a beautiful brass oval frame and this came picture came in it. I can’t make any assumptions about where they are or who they are ( maybe perhaps the age- looks to be the 90’s) but I really enjoy the photo.
This was part of my high school English teacher’s in class collection. I asked if I could borrow it but I guess it’s been three years since I’ve asked. I like to think I’m taking good care of it for her.
If you ever had an English class then you have probably seen this book. Winner of the 1989 Newbery award it is a must for the poetry section of your bookshelf. That is, if you have someone else to read it with
This book was a hand-me-down from a nice lady who knew I liked to read. As you can see it isn’t in the best conditions, as is most paperbacks I own, but I managed to open it gently and read it cover to cover. Wouldn’t you know it, it’s actually a series! I need to add the rest to my collection. Defiantly worth the read.
