I Love Old Photographs

Recently I "liked" a page on Facebook called "Old Minneapolis".  Pictures are from all different time periods, and they are so cool.  I'm doing some photo scanning this weekend and here are a few charmers from my own files on various topics:


I'm not sure if this is a parade or funeral or what.  I like the way the boy is looking back at the camera.  The soldiers are all very solemn.



This looks like a very bare bones town doesn't it?  This must be what they mean by "a one horse town"



An old bridge likely in southwestern Minnesota


A woman tries to get her two small pets to be friends.


Just the sort of farm I fantasized living on when I was around ten or so, having listened to mom's stories of living on a farm.


I like this guy for his Brillo Pad bristly beard.  I did not write his name in ink. Tsk.

A Single Tomato

I have officially had a single red tomato in my garden.  An aptly named Supersweet 100 was red and ripe and gone in a trice.  No photo, but it was REAL.
