People horsing around

What it is:

Four photos, ranging from 2.5 x 3.5 inches to 4.5 x 2.75 inches.  The remains of photo album mounts are stuck to the corners of one of them.

What I know about it:

The upper right photo is stamped Beckers Camera Shop / Beckers Drug (at Walgreen’s) / Rapid City, S. Dak.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.


Just in case anybody was getting weary of the relentless parade of formal, pretty poses.  🙂

  1. These are feel-good photos. The sort that makes you remember that even back then, people were just…people. They were funny, did things just for a laugh. Somehow, it seems like with old, formal images, the people seem stiff and very proper. These are a treat to see, because it reminds me of how people have always been pretty much the same. I especially love the upper right photo. Great contrast, and we can only imagine what happened there. Great post. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I like the mother who seems to be saying, “Billy, get your face away from your brother’s fist.” She’s having none of this “fun” nonsense of which you speak. 😉

    • Hahah, yes. To me it looks like they are posing for the camera a bit, and yet it’s the sort of scenario that plays out all the time without the camera, too.
