Here's my mother in a very stylish dress, seated for her informal senior class photograph. These high school girls of the late 1940s and early 50's were as stylish as one could be while living in rural Louisiana.

I think the photo was taken around 1945 when my mom (on the right) was 15 years old.

Beautifully hand tinted 8X10 photo found in a whole suitcase full of one family's photos from the 1930s to the 1960s. The father may have been a professional photographer, or a talented amateur.

But what is most striking about this picture is what is written on the back: "Looking at this now - I realise I was carrying my daughter - how I wish those times could have given me the courage to ignore the moral issues and let nature take its course."

There were no pictures of a daughter in the collection. Found in Brighton, no other info, but the lady in the picture did have one son who is featured in lots of other pictures (1950s onwards).

This image was among a group of negatives I received from my German source for vintage found photos. It's from the 1930s or 1940s. I see no insignia on the uniforms, which is a puzzle. Unless maybe they're being worn post-WWII? The belt buckles aren't what I'm used to seeing for German infantry issue, so maybe these aren't German uniforms at all..?

A wedding in France in the 1940s. The group is assembled outside the church and most of the women have flowers in their hair. The photograph was taken by Contant of Vouziers. I bought this in Troyes, France.
