What it is:

Two photos, each measuring 2.75 x 3.75 inches.

What I know about it:

Written in pencil on the back of each is Thelma / Burke / Jinny.


Just some more summery photos in honor of the beautiful weather we’re having.  The song “Two Ladies” from the musical Cabaret pops into my head when I see these photos.  Burke looks like a lucky guy.

  1. The shorter of the gals, I suppose Jinny, looks like my sister Marie.

    • It often surprises me how many people I feel I “recognize” from these old photos.

      • Same here. Frequently I see people who look like long-dead relatives, though it’s clear from the surroundings or the time period that they’re not my relatives afterall.

        On a side note, the dark skirt looks just like the kelly-green Junior Girl Scout uniform skirt I wore until the mid-90s – same length, very similar cut, and had that same stiffness to it that made it stick out with funny corners. .

        On another side note, have you seen any other “vintage” photos that weren’t specifically of men in their swimwear or skivvies where the men’s shorts were as short as that?

      • On your second side note, that crossed my mind, too. I was wondering if he wasn’t wearing a shirt over swim trunks, because they seem unusually short.
