Faces from the past

Today's old historical images aren't going to get a lot of commentary from me. Just look at these photos and imagine the thoughts and feelings of the people, now long gone, and what their lives must have been like. These aren't famous people; most have no names. But there are a lot of stories here, if we could only hear them.

Immigrants, getting their first look at the skyline of New York City.

Written in pencil on the back of this card is "Miss Sunshine Fontane, 1926".

Sitting on the porch. Maybe after church on Sunday.

A day at the beach.

Native American portraits.

I hope you've enjoyed this trip into the past. My next blog will contain the usual garish colors and silly writing.
