We honor these brave young pioneers.

Very pretty ladies… real head turners!
Ah, they really knew how to have fun back in the day!
Is that another person behind the bare tree trunk, wearing a plaid shirt and leaning on the dresser?
I give the gals a two thumbs up for even managing that awkward pose in a corset
This is one of those “vintage” portraits taken at a photo booth you see in a carnival or amusement park, where they dress you up in old-looking garb and take an “old-fashioned” photo. I admit, the head pile does make it unique!
Most old photos have stiff non-smiling faces because it took so much longer for the ‘flash’ to work, sometimes hours. Hard to hold a smile for that length of time But this looks great, might get my 7 kids to do a pic like this.
I actually love this photo. It’s rare to see victorian women being silly. I love their beautiful smiles. This is something my girl friends and I would do. I guess young ladies haven’t changed that much:)
Top: Yertle. Bottom: Mack.
Is that one of those white molded plant stands that they sell at Bed, Bath and Beyond?
these women were clearly ‘a-head’ of their time…
yes!! saw this on retronaut the other day and immediately thought, “AFP!” pioneers, indeed!
Charmingly Eastern European. What could their story have been? Young Pioneers leaving for Palestine, perhaps? I retroactively wish them well.
i’ve got a box full of old family photos- most very stiff in pose. nice to see people actually had a sense of humor back then…
