So, I did decide to go ahead and find vintage photos to make a collage for the wall in the bathroom. I'm specifically looking for photos of people and their cars, but this group also has people with a bus and a plane (also pretty cool). I found a person on Etsy selling a stack of 9 vintage photos for $3, so I snatched them up. Most sellers want at least that much for one photo.
The above photo is marked July 4, 1949 on the back. That old convertible sure looks like fun!
This photo only has a stamp on the back from the processing studio. "Peoples Studio, 133 S. Gay St., Knoxville, Tenn."
No information on this photo taken in front of a National Trailways bus.
No information on this photo either, the woman sure was dressed up though, fur stole / scarf and all!
Another unmarked photo. The car that this girl is standing in front of has suicide doors, though.
No markings other than "May 56" for the processing date. Look at that beautiful ranch house in the background!
This young lady is sure dressed up and ready to go!
Three women, I'm wondering if they might be Daughter, Grandmother, and Mother. This scan didn't turn out very well, but two of them have large corsages on. It looks like there are some flowers starting to come up in the yard behind them, so I'm guessing it's Easter. Oh, and check out that beautiful convertible to the left of the photo!
I'm still trying to figure out how to make this collage. My original plan had been to individually frame each photo, but getting frames this small and in such strange sizes will be difficult. I though about building some, but that's a project that would never get finished. I'm thinking one big poster frame now with a black poster board background and making the collage on that. I'll have to pick up a frame once I get enough photos and play around with it.
