The girls on the second boat look a bit evil – like mermaids in disguise up to no good. It has a sort of Picnic at Hanging Rock feel to it.
The girl standing with her hand on her hip looks like she could be a mean mermaid, but I think the other ones all look nice enough.
I like the jacket on girl #1 – interesting button pattern.
It looks like she forgot to button the bottom one.
Surreptitious blog posts with interesting photos! Love them.
Well, Surreptitious is my middle name.
(No, it’s actually E–c.)
Where did you find these photos?
I like the frame of the second one, it reminds me of old photos in the family photo box (we’re not keen on nice looking photo albums, lol).
It’s good to see you’re back.
I wish I could say that I stumbled upon these photos at my local antiques store, but I actually did an eBay search on “girl” + “boat” or “woman” + “ship” (or some combination of those keywords). I usually think that’s cheating, but I did it and I’m happy with the pictures I got. They came from Germany.
I also like the frame on the second one. There’s a name for that particular style, but I can’t remember what it is.
Nice pictures! I didn’t know that you could get old pictures like this from e-bay! Nice to see you back blogging 🙂 I can’t wait to read about the books that you read when you were away from blogging.
I’m having a difficult time coming up with words these days, so I’ll probably just post pictures for awhile. I’m not sure I’ll go back and write anything about the books I read over the summer…there were 22 of them, after all!
For some reason, I get a Margaret Bourke-White vibe from these. “As economic conditions worsened, many women lost their homes and were forced to live on sailboats. Known as The Sailboat Women (or Das Bootenhausenfrausteinwasserflugens), they made ends meet by fishing and baking gigantic, elaborate wedding cakes.”
They also kidnapped women and stole their shoes…which they then used to keep their boat balanced when it was out of water.
I see a pair of shoes underneath that boat. Did someone discard hers, or is this a magic ship that landed on some type of watery wicked witch?
You never can tell with those Bootenhausenfrausteinwasserflugens.
