A Little Hunting and Gathering

A Lovely Day for a Picnic By the River

How I miss garage sale season. Today I found a few things at Flutter and Porch Light on Mississippi Ave. At Flutter I found a page from a photograph album showing lovely citizens of Maine disporting themselves by a river. I'd like to take a brief time travel trip and join them.

I want to be the one in the white dress and hat.

This young man below is feeling good about himself. The gold arrow thing in the right upper corner is a strange kind of photo mount.

At Porch Light they had some very small leather books with various contents. I chose one with satiric poems by W.S. Gilbert, of the famous Gilbert & Sullivan duo.

Here Gilbert describes being haunted by the
ghosts of his many social gaffes

I scanned these at high resolution so I can
use them as backgrounds, etc. Weird illustrations!

I've been missing garage sale season, too! Even the estate sales have been slow this winter. Your photo finds are great. Vintage picnic scenes are a particular favorite of mine!
