indiana, 1939

My grandparents, Edna and Dan, were married in 1938.  In 1939 they traveled from St. Louis to Indiana to visit Edna's family there.  I love the photos from this trip--I'm guessing Edna took most of them--as they have such a dreamy, summery feeling.

Also, these gals wore some really cute dresses!

I really love this photo.

Edna on horseback.

Another photo I particularly love--Dan and one of Edna's relatives.

These folks appear to be standing in front of some kind of mobile grocery store.  Nifty!

Dan on the right, rocking the boater.

That's Edna's mother, my great-grandmother Mary Francis, on the far left.  I love this photo for the dresses, naturally, but also for the luncheonette menu behind them!



  1. I ADORE LOVE these photos. Nothing makes me smile than viewing old photos of real people living their lives. The people are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Goregous photos K. Such treaures!

    I love the dress and hair of the lady in the fourth photo and that menu is fantastic but I do have a question… can you just order cream cheese by itself??

    1. T, I was kind of wondering about that, too...and also the "brick cheese" on the menu. I'm thinking maybe they're sandwiches.

  3. I just love the photo of your Grandpa Dan in his boater! He really was rocking it. It's fabulous that you've got these photographs. Thanks for sharing!
