Album Rescue Project: Album 2, Photos 40-45

I am posting these photos in the order I found them in the album, but that does not appear to be chronological. Several of the photos below belong with others posted previously.

Photo 40

See the train in the background? There is a helpful inscription on the back of the above photo:

I did a Google Images search for “Susquehanna River Harrisburg Pa.” I wonder if the bridge in the background of the photo above is the same as that in several shots among the image results.

Photo 41

The above is such a pretty scene — would love to see it in color, especially those houses peeking around the bend.

Photo 42

Another shot of the train and the bridge.

Photo 43

Back at the lake. The little tot is having fun — the older boy? Not so much.

Photo 44

I love the boy’s bow tie.

Album Rescue Project: Album 2, Photos 34-39

Quite the variety of photos in this next set:

Photo 34

Things to love about this photo: the car; the boy’s hat; the dog (or is that a sheep?).

Photo 35

Yeah, these kids are barely tolerating having their photo taken.

Photo 36

The above is a dramatic shot, isn’t it? Anyone recognize it? If you’ve been to Gettysburg and seen Devil’s Rock (or Devil’s Den Rock), then you’ve seen it before.

Love the knickers in the next photo:

Photo 37

This is a different vehicle than what is shown in the background of the first photo above. Perhaps they are posing in front of a new car?

Photo 38

Well, here’s an easy landmark to identify — the Reflecting Pool with the Washington Monument in the background.

Photo 39

Donald Trump’s hair’s got nothin’ on the kid on the left…

Another timely post given the weather here in the U.S. “Hotter ‘n Hades” as my grandma used to say — makes you just want to jump in the nearest lake:

Photo 28

Hard to tell who the adult is in this photo, but I’m pretty confident it’s our star sporting the swimming fashion of the time period (compare to two photos down).

Photo 29

I *think* this is the same youngster pictured in the boat scene above.

Photo 30

That’s definitely our star on the left. I think that the older child has appeared before and I assume it’s her son. Here’s another photo of him (he’s on the right).

It kills me that our star had kids, who presumably had kids, who ditched these photos. Phooey.

Difficult to know if these next photos are of the same waterway where the two boat scenes above occurred — maybe they were taken on the way home. Anyone recognize these scenes?

Photo 31

Photo 32

Photo 33

The above is a neat shot — I love how the photographer captured the car in the distance. It’s kind of far away to try and figure out what type of vehicle it was, but here’s a crop of it anyhow:

Album Rescue Project: Album 2, Photos 25-27

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted about this project. I’m happy to report, however, that I’ve finished scanning the images from Album 2. When we last left off, we were in Gettysburg and I’m pretty sure these next few images are from that same location as well.

Photo 27

Pretty timely given the anniversary of the Battle of Gettsyburg was this past weekend. Anyone been there more recently than the 1920s/1930s? I think it would be neat to find modern photos of the same scenes.

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

Photo 21

Anyone recognize this vista?

Photo 22

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:

Photo 23

Anyone been to Gettysburg lately? Recognize these rocks?

Photo 24

‘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.

The next several images feature the progeny (that’s my belief anyway) of our star:

Photo 16

I must say that the above little guy or gal does not look very enthused about the swing.

Photo 17

Okay, I think this is the same baby and given the shoes, I think it’s a girl.

Photo 18

Photo 20

Finally! Our star makes another appearance. If you click on the above photo and enlarge it, you’ll note the child is holding a basket. I wonder if it’s Easter?

Album Rescue Project: Album 2, Photos 13-15

This next post is dedicated to Footnote Maven. I’m so excited to reveal two facts about our star:

Photo 13

She’s wearing glasses! And? I think she’s a mom! That might explain why these photos are lacking captions and codes — she probably didn’t have time to fiddle with that anymore.

Photo 14

I love these photos.
