Just fun stuff
check out the early campers
An interesting set of "everyday" photos from the past.
The rural kids in the 50ís rode bikes to school. You took whatever path was best for you. This lad looks like
he is carrying a string of Christmas lights, but it doesnít look like winter. Wonder whatís going on!
Camping out in 1918.
This couple pose in an early version of American Gothic, with a groundhog killed on their Manchester farm. It's dinner!
Note: Photo taken circa 1914, from a family photo album.
Standing over one of her many trophy mule deer, subsistence-and-sport huntress ďGustyĒ Wallihan appears every inch the frontier matron with her dressy bonnet,
prairie-pattern cartridge belt, floral-embroidered gauntlets, hunting knife, and Remington-Hepburn rifle. 1895
At least this one wonít be quite as dangerous as the old single wheeled models. Look in the trailer over the back wheel. They have their baby in there!
This was the approved way to change the street lamps in 1910. Cool!
A single Paddy Wagon. Never knew they had such a vehicle! This is way cool.
Here is an early motorhome, built in 1926. I think this is so very cool looking! Iím surprised the light chassis would handle it.
Weíve all been aware of the traditional tent wagon. This is a tent vehicle built in 1910.
These are vintage treadmills in the 1920ís.
This is a 1920ís refrigerator. Only the elite could afford such a thing, and most still had the old ice boxes.
A hair dryer in the 1920 Salon. What a contraption!
Chester E. Macduffee next to his newly patented, 250 kilo diving suit, 1911
A postcard from the 1800ís advertising a knife throwing act with the traveling circus. How would you like that job?
A Strongwoman balances a piano and the pianist on her chest. 1920. Thatís some chest that can do that!
London, in the 1920ís, this was a telephone engineer. What a job!
Two young girls in a West Germans street chat with their grandparents in the window of their home in the Eastern sector, separated only by a barbed wire barricade.
It was a common occurrence for families, who had once only lived on the opposite side of the street from one another, to become separated by the ever growing Berlin Wall.
A Gibson Girl in her corset in the early 1900ís. Those poor women. This was one fad that really hurt a lot of women for life.
Lillian Russell. A plus size beauty in the late 1800s. She was around 200 lb at the peak of her career.
She was considered "The American Beauty." Weighwatchers would want to enroll her today!
