These girls are not dead, joedogchow, Their eyes,their stance, the vivid tone of their expressions. the position in their chairs, all of it must be taken into consideration. All in all, usually if you can't tell it, they''re not dead.
does anyone know the difference in a Windsor knot and a four-in-hand? I know what we typically see today is the four in hand, but am unschooled in the other types. I've been studying up on some of the styles and learning about how to date photos by the differences in fashion. It's very interesting.
I've just got to know, how did they get those spiral curls in their hair when no one had beauty parlors? I don't like them, having been blessed with kinky hair all my life any way, but those knotty looking curls drive me mad! Those who are familiar with the process, fill me in.
We will steal to the bank of the moonbeam lake and taste of the nectar sweet that only the wee folk may partake of and sleep in the arms of Queen Mab, of the fae. In the morning, we'll cross the rainbow, and find ourselves back at Mother's coattails.
There's an old hymn with words that seem so appropriate." How sweet and happy seem, those days of which I dream, when memory recalls them now and then. And with such rapture sweet, my weary heart would beat, if I could hear my mother pray again."
I am completely in love with that big dog. I have always liked the big, raw boned dogs over the little lap babies. I had a dog that was half chow and nearly that big with a huge head and I loved him a lot.
Thanks, Boatswain,I went to newfoundland and there he was!. I don't know what I was thinking, But Keeshund was what I was picturing for a Newfoundland. He's beautiful, A real DOG of a dog, not a tiny mousey little creature.
What is this marvelous great beast"s breed? I've tried to look it up on several dog websites, but it must be one of those old breeds that no longer exsist. It looks a lot like a black great pyrrenes
If I had a lot of land, I'd love to have one.
It's not really so odd when you look at all the cheap frames my mom used to put our pictures in, they were all thin gold colored frames with velvet covered cardboard backing that slid out so you could easily replace it with a newer school picture. Some had two or three linked frames and they sat up because of the flap attached in back.
Well, I'm 52, and in my day, they had mineral oil based baby oil and petroleum jelly, so maybe we're all too young to have had lard in our hair. This is one time I'm glad I have wiry hair..But I do have one picture where I definately could've used an oil change, now that I think of it. I usually looked like my head was a popcorn popper SPROING!!
Ha Ha! Erthy, I caught your reference. Made me feel young again. My older sister used that stuff in the 60s to make her flip stay perfect all day. Actually, pomades - I think that's the word have been around for centuries.Ladies used to have elaborate, ridiculously high hairdos that required pillows and pomades to keep them stiff. They would go to extremes to keep these productions fresh, never washing their hair, using special covers, retouching for months. We had a cleaning woman where i worked that had a plastic looking helmet head that I used to think had to harbor live critters. Thanks for the laugh.
The more I looked at these pics, I felt bad. I should explain, the hellfire club was a society of ill repute that was fronted as a high society party club, kind of like PlayBoy, only much less respectable. Marvel Comics used the idea for their own Hellfire club, whose inner circle were powerful mutants fashioned after the men of a chessboard. The Black Queen was the highest and lowest mannered of the bunch. This is not an image suitable for a pretty little girl. My apologies.
Could be. Not being either European or Catholic, I really couldn't contradict it. Most of what I was saying was deduction from reading the encyclopedia. Interesting about Belen Viviente. I am intrigued that there is a windmill in the scene. Maybe from the Netherlands?
Actually, I guess those girls were probably envied by some children, since they had such fancy clothes and elaborate hairdo's. I agree, I wasn't turned on by either , but styles changed so often in history. No one today would be caught dead in a Nehru jacket and beads or a toga and sandals, but they were fashion statements once.
what I said before goes with your comment, baerbel2408, the annunciation was when Gabriel told Mary about being with child by the Holy Spirit, and Mary knelt down and said let it be as the Lord wants with me. So, I figure some catholic schools or churches might put on such a pageant.
This is such a pretty picture. At what time were these popular? I remember getting baby chicks that were dyed for Easter and died before Easter. We thought they were so grand, but chickens don't make good pets for city kids.
On an episode of Oddities on tv, I saw a collar quite like the one the girl is wearing and it was made of human hair. It was a memorial piece, modern, but made to be like old ones. I wonder if this one is one of those.
She is very pretty and nothing wrong other than a mutation, [even Liz Taylor was a mutant}, but I don't really know that I'd call it exploitation. This was often the only way these children could earn a living. Unfortunate, yes.
