So many of us born in the 1940s and '50s were carted about and had our early pictures taken on the seat of a Taylor-Tot stroller that I thought it would be fun to collect as many family photos of kids in Taylor-Tot brand strollers as we could amass. The iconic brand, with it's wooden seat, curved steel-mesh seat-back and wooden hand grip for the rider, were manufactured by the Frank F. Taylor Company in Cincinnatti, Ohio starting in the 1920s and were the popular standard for American baby boom…
Vintage photographs of "house-proud" people from the 1800s to 1979. Post photos from your collection that show people posing in front of their homes. Each photo should include the exterior of a house and one or more people.
Photos of house-proud people and their houses will ideally convey the idea of "here's where we live" or "here's what our house looks like" or "our new house." Images that show an entire house—or a good portion of it—are especially encouraged so that we can see the types and…
Another of my "mini" groups.
Vintage photos where children - sometimes includes adults - are arranged in order of height, either right to left or left to right. Three or more, please.
Pre-1980 - and the "stair steps" need to be the focus of the picture. (see examples).
Wildlife, insects, and scenery from Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Also add your nature and landscape images from The Smoky Mountain area.
I'm wishing a bunch of Roses with photos who are touching.
Pictures of women, men, children or capturing beautiful animals and plants are desired.
I had started this group on Flickr shortly before I left. It's another one of my small theme groups, but in the short time I did it over there, some great photos were submitted.
So...the idea is people IN wheelbarrows. NOT just pushing them, no matter how cute.
And please submit photographs where the focus is on the group's subject -no crowd scenes, please.
"Vintage" in this group means pre- mid 1960s.
Photographs of what is probably the majority of a family looking glum, bitchy, miserable, angry - whatever.
Please make sure that all of the family (or most) look this way - not just one person.
You get the picture.
Pre at least 1980 please, so that we don't get flooded with current digitals.
VIntage photographs of children or adults wearing enormous bows or bow-ties.
Images, older than 20 years, who tell about the wonderful time of Advent and Christmas.
do not post books, cards, illustrations, china and so on.
There are so much groups here for.
Only original photos
from the 1800s - 1993.
just old photographs.
Every week, there will be a new theme. Post only one vintage photo (1800s-1979) from your collection that fits the theme. Tell us a little about it, like why you picked it (if it is not obvious), or where you purchased it, etc. I will pick some common themes, but will also try to throw in some strange ones just to keep things interesting. I look forward to seeing your photos!
the purpose of this group is to celebrate the time when recorded music was simply yet artistically packaged in a way that enhanced your total experience of the music.
the period encompassed by this group is from the time of the first 78 albums of the late '30s though 1990. if something before or after this wows you, by all means bring it. The group is about fun and sharing, not limits. all genres are welcome.
So please: Come, browse and, above all, share.
