Proud Grandpa and a Beautiful Baby! (c. 1920’s – California)

A Found Photo from a group that came from California.

I love the look on this man’s face.  He is so happy and proud!

And, I think he’s the same guy that was hanging around the tree in this photo!

Harriet Scofield, October 1921

Hey Harriet!

The problem with collecting “found photos” is that they are rarely named and dated.  However, sometimes, a collector gets lucky.

So, we have here, Ms. Harriet Scofield posing for her photo all dressed up with somewhere to go!

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?
