1927 – 869 E Price St.

A very young mechanic, noted on the back of one of the photos: “1927 – 869 E Price St.”  That’s it — no city or state or names.

Mexicali Beer ~ 75 Cents a Pitcher; Dapper Gentlemen Bar Hopping

Mexicali Beer anyone?

Just 75 cents a pitcher!

This found photo was in a batch that came from California.

I can only guess that this photo was taken in the early 1900’s.

1910’s or 20’s?

The shadows are tagging along for the cheap beer.

1920’s Lady and Dog Casting a Shadow in Michigan

This photo came from a batch of photographs from Michigan that date from the early 1900’s until the 1940’s. 

Based upon the clothing, and hair, my guess is the photo was taken in the 1920’s. 

Who was she? I have no idea.  But, I like her face, and I think the dog is fierce looking. 

Do you think she was a “flapper” with her short hair and short skirt?
