Album Rescue Project: Album 2, Photos 21-24

Any American Pickers (or similar) fans out there? Can you make out or recognize the name on the little toy wagon below?

Anyone recognize this vista?

There’s a hint on the back:

Reverse of Photo 22 “York Haven June 1928″

Whoa, so I just Googled York Haven and found a Wikipedia entry about the area. Only 709 residents in the 2010 census? If it’s always been that small and there’s a connection to this album still living there… Well, the task doesn’t seem so monumental when the number is that small. However, if the town was much bigger in the earlier 20th century and the population then dwindled? Well, the family could be anywhere…

Another scene on the wagon:

Anyone been to Gettysburg lately? Recognize these rocks?

‘Cause they’re apparently in Gettysburg:

Reverse of Photo 24 “3 yrs old in Gettysburg”

I’m beginning to wonder about how this album and its cousin ended up in an Easton antique store. So, if the photo above was taken circa 1928, the babe pictured would be in their late 80s. Perhaps they have passed on and they never had children to whom these photos would mean something. It makes me sad. I do hope I can find a family member who cares enough to keep them. If not, I’m happy enough to keep them myself.

    Missy, could it be a Safety Coaster? See picture http://www.bargainjohn.com/images/T000/T092CWagon1.jpg

    The wheels are different, but the lettering looks similar. Just a thought.
