…and other vintage photographs of women or girls on or near ships or boats or other watercraft.
This one reminds me of the Laverne & Shirley episode where the girls inadvertently appear as “loose women” in an Army hygiene film.
I probably would’ve bought this one even if the girls weren’t in front of a boat. It’s just a cute picture. Do you think Edith and Nellie are twins? I completely overlooked their similarities until I began typing this caption. I wonder how they know Dee.
I found about a dozen different pictures of this woman scattered throughout the shop.* I wanted to take them all home and keep them together, but that would’ve cost too much. I ended up buying the two that best fit into my collection.
I call this woman “Princess Elizabeth” because of the life preserver in this picture. I like to think that she’s deposed royalty from Hawaii (or some place) and that she’s making the best of it.
Rub-a-dub-dub, five androgynous kids in a tub…or a big wheel or a barrel or something.
I always think the American flag is backwards when the stars are on the right. In fact, I thought this picture was a reverse negative until I saw the boat’s name painted on the side.
(* = I purchased these 6 pictures–and 10 others–during two recent trips to Fairlook Antiques in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood.)
