Check out the random kid with the vintage tricycle in Photo 77:
I wonder at which park this photo was taken — could it still be around?
Photo 78 sort of reveals the identity of a prior album subject:

At least I can read around the glue marks this time.
I’m curious as to the setting for this next photo. It looks rather industrial:
Photo 73 has some familiar faces. They are pictured very far away, but their identities are listed on the back.

We first met Aunt Bert in Photo 16. Hazel Walters appeared in Photo 13.
Photo 74 doesn’t have any identifying information, but it is a cute photo:
I believe we’re at another military memorial of some kind in the next two photos:
Exciting news! I’ve finally finished scanning all of the photos in Album 1 of the Album Rescue Project. Now I just need to blog about them!
These ladies have some lovely hats in Photo 64:

Photo 67 has more of those confounded codes written on it. The numbers must be years, but how do they make any sense? And are the letters initials? This is driving me slowly mad…
Insanity-inducing notations aside, this really is quite a lovely photo…
Here’s one more summery photo before the weather turns colder.
Is it me or is that building behind her really crooked?
Check out the funky scissors hanging on the wall to the left of the girls.
More fun photos in this next set. And one frustrating one.
The little girl front and center looks like a total badass with her headband and her arms crossed.
And here’s the album’s star with a parasol on a sunny day. If it’s as hot as I think it is, I can’t imagine having to wear those tights and shoes.
The girl in the middle of this photo almost looks glamorous!
And now for the frustrating photo:
Photo 60 (note that his chair is placed over a cellar door)
It’s not the image itself that’s frustrating. It’s what happened on the back:
Reverse of Photo 60: "Uncle H???y"
Argh! Can’t make out the first name of the uncle pictured due to the use of glue to attach this photo. The album owner tended to glue in the photos that were placed toward the center of the album, probably because when the pages were turned, those photos toward the center tended to pop out of the photo corners when the pages bent. This was one of those photos. Dangit.
Here’s some new scenery for the next couple of photos:
It took me a while to notice the woman in the window — interesting shot, huh?
These two are attached at the hip, aren’t they? Note they are both wearing the same pin. I’ve seen the star wearing it other photos in the album. They may just be locket pins, but I wonder if they have some other significance.
I’m really starting to wonder about the labeling system the album owner used on these photos. Why write the same thing twice on this photo? So bizarre…
Too bad this photo is so blurry. She looks happy and also like she’s saying something.
This subject looks a little miffed. I can only guess that she didn’t want her picture taken.
Some of these next photos depict a fun trip to the lake.
That’s our star on the right and her friend in the middle has appeared in several other photos already. At least two of the girls are holding bouquets, but I wonder if they picked these themselves.

I can only imagine that the group down by this lake or river put a lot of effort into this raft, what with its flag and everything. I love the fact they took a photo of it and even captioned it.

I don’t think we’ve come across this little guy before — looks like he’s having fun!
Here’s the album’s star all dressed up again. From the hat and dress, I think both of these photos were taken on the same day.
Once again, no clues on the back of these photos either.
The next photos from the album show more fun times outdoors. Have you noticed that all of these photos have been taken outdoors? I guess flash photography wasn’t available (not affordably, at least), so they had to rely on natural light to take their photos.
I’m trying to decide if the above is some sort of game or if the photographer was just waiting for imminent disaster (kind of like with the hammock series…).
And, any idea what she’s holding?
Unfortunately, none of these photos have notes on the back.
I’m going to hazard a guess that this is our star’s grandma:
And I know for a fact that is this the album owner’s father…
… because of what’s written on the back:
