circa 1928


not only am i fond of the girl in the photo and her genuine smile in this seemingly impromptu portrait, but i adore the cursive message on the backside; written from a true friend.

"Dear Sam,
Don't you think this is a darling picture of your wife?
I was afraid to send it to her because she might
have destroyed it before you saw it..." (ca. 1928)


{found this photo among my saved projects. i scanned it once for someone's family history. sadly, i cannot even site my sources. though i suspect, whoever she is, this woman loved the person who stood behind the camera snapping this shot.}

Just stumbled over here from operation paper-cut and love your site. Such pretty things, great photos, and lovely words. And I especially love this photo--old postcards and photos, especially with words, are just so wonderful-- little time capsules that I can't help pouring over.
