Postage Party & Curled Cuties

The songs we sing of the past often evolve as time goes on. It's up to old photos to set the record straight.

Blast from the past

Lunch is served

School day shenanigans are always at their peak in the cafeteria. Something about the combination of a food tray, carton milk, and an unruly gaggle of pre-teens results in the most exciting time of the day.

Brown-eyed curl

"The little girl is my mother-in-law, Ruth Elmer, from Kansas City. It was taken when she was about 3 or 4 years old (in 1920 or 1921) just before she had those gorgeous ringlets cut."
