Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

I would say that two weeks of horse pictures is just about enough (but you know I have got more!). We will close this out for now with this snapshot of a couple on a horse. The woman is wearing a cloche hat and has pretty legs showing. I can only imagine her opinion of getting on horseback for her photo. The dude looks like he is very comfortable on the horse and perhaps it is his horse for work. You can see the spurs on his boots and leather vest. The buildings in the background look like Craftsman style homes. The sidewalk is paved but the road is not.

    That’s an odd mix of clothing! She doesn’t look too thrilled.

    Those houses look interesting – seems a lot of Sear’s houses were “two-tone” when they had two floors:

    “From 1908–1940, Sears, Roebuck and Co. sold about 70,000 – 75,000 homes through their mail-order Modern Homes program. Over that time Sears designed 447 different housing styles, from the elaborate multistory Ivanhoe, with its elegant French doors and art glass windows, to the simpler Goldenrod, which served as a quaint, three-room and no-bath cottage for summer vacationers. (An outhouse could be purchased separately for Goldenrod and similar cottage dwellers.) ”

    Pictures of many of them are from the same source:

    I wonder if this isn’t from the 1920s? Judging by the hat, dress length, and shoe style on the lady. I bet they make a handsome couple when standing next to each other and she isn’t glaring at the camera.
