Vintage Photo from the 1930's

This is a vintage photo from my

Etsy Shop that I wanted to share with you!

I just love to look over this photo and spot all the ladies in

there Sunday dress.

It is interesting that most are wearing hats and big hats at that!

But that was the fashion back then.

I am guessing this is maybe 1930's or earlier.

And there is only one man in the photo sitting down on the ground

in the middle. Who is the guy? Maybe it is a church meeting/social and he is the pastor.

And this must be a large church or at least large women's group.

Plus you can see a few children scattered about!

I wish I knew the history of this photo. I do know that I found it in a large box of old photos that belonged to my husband's aunt that passed away a couple of years ago. She had kept it in a closet on the top shelf along with other boxes of old photos.

She never had any children and when she and her husband passed away (he passed a few months before her), we took and sorted through these pictures.

I wished she had shown these to me and told me the stories of who they might be.

But as a result, I have saved many for my collection and decided to put some in my Etsy shop to sell. And if they do not sell, well I will keep them. I bet there is a story in there somewhere.

More from Our Natchez Trace Vacation

Magnolia Hall was one of the best Greek Revival Houses to visit. Unfortunely the day we were there the Hall was closed. But that did not stop me from stepping up to the front porch and taking a few pictures of the front door and one of the many floor to ceiling windows.

I loved the large windows with the tall shutters. Just needed a rocking chair or porch swing and a glass of ice tea to make it perfect.

This is the front door to Magnolia Hall.

Magnolia Hall was built about 1858.

Behind Magnolia Hall was this sweet little hideaway. A vine covered

sitting area. I can imagine a nice place to slip away with a book to read.

Historic Natchez Mississippi October 2011 Trip

The Mighty Mississippi River looking south from the
Natchez Visitor Center
Stanton Hall in Natchez Mississippi
Beautiful House and Grounds
We had a wonderful time in Natchez. We camped at the
Natchez State Park, just north of Natchez. It was a very nice and clean
campground. We were there for 5 days and met folks from all over!
Our plan was to visit Natchez for a couple of days and then travel up the Natchez Trace.
Well, we decided to stay at the campground for a couple of more days.
Only made it up the Trace to Jackson, MS.
Our plan now is to resume the Trace soon and follow it through to Tennessee.
I will post a few more days later of other historic places we visited.

Trying Again to Keep up My Post


This is a simple but pretty blouse I made a few years ago.

Made from Imperial Batiste with three rows of puffing down the front. The sleeves are 3/4 length and have lace and ribbon insertion. The back is button. I loved making this blouse and would like to try and make another....maybe for Easter.
