Librarian Snowball Fight…and other (vintage) pictures from Seattle.

Every time I get back from Seattle I do a post called X…and other pictures from Seattle where X equals the name of my favorite photo in the batch.  Although I took 365 pictures on my most recent trip, I don’t feel like posting any of them right now.  So I’ve decided to mix up the theme a bit and make the post using the six vintage snapshots I purchased at Fairlook Antiques down in Pioneer Square.  These photos hit many of the usual topics: Marion & Herb, old bicycles, and girls/women on/near boats/ships.

I’m sorry to report that the Marion & Herb wedding shot is a double.  The big guy on the left looked new to me, but I suspect I was just remembering this one.  Either way, this is the first time I’ve posted a picture of the full four member wedding party.

    “librarian snowball fight” sounds exciting! … but this should be called “librarians display snow found amongst rocks”. It has its own charm but it doesn’t live up to my librarian snowball fantasies.

      All of my librarian fantasies feature the librarians disinfecting my items prior to checkout.

      Purel those dust jackets! Wipe off the peanut butter fingerprints!

    Those are all gems! I’ve never seen anyone look less excited about a snowball fight. It’s impressive.

    1) I thought you had written “Liberian Snowball Fight” – and thought ‘how could he tell?’

    2) I really like the two 1940’s ladies and their bikes – but surely they’re riding boy’s bikes? Boyfriend and I have bikes from the ’40’s too; the one in the foreground of that photo looks like quite a bit like his.

      1) Does it snow in Liberia? I wonder if anyone there has ever had a snowball fight.

      2) I assume that bikes with the low bars were made so it would be easier for ladies to get on/off without all their many-layered petticoats and underthings getting in the way (and to avoid flashing). As these two women are wearing pants and shorts, I don’t suppose it matters if they ride boys’ bikes. In other words, I have no idea.
