The young in the black dress looks very uncomfortable, as if her corset has been laced too tight.

The young man staring directly into the camera, perfectly exposed and focused, is my favorite of this set.

Then, there’s a child on a play horse, and a photo of young people on a bridge that is dated 1942, and a man in front of a house that is dated June 5 1927.

About The Author

Jessica Kay Murray

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
