Post Pictures



Antique Funeral / Burial Photograph

This photo kind of grabbed me when I was sifting through items to post.  I sure wish there was a date on the back.   The sepia tone and the silver patina at the edges is just beautiful.  I also included some closeups of the structures in the far background of the photos.  Click on each to see a larger version! 


1934 Christmas Card & Wishes from the Starkey Tribe

Hello all - as for who of you are still out there and didn't give up on  I've had a long break from things here focusing on other things, including building

Alas, I have returned to post here and there with things that I find amusing and on paper.  Here we go!

The Starkey Tribe wishes heap good things for you from the Christmas of 1934.  

Looks like there's 3 children with 2 grandchildren for the grand folks.

I looked up the address but couldn't come up with a confirmed address to pinpoint their residence.


c. 1907 Geronimo, Chief of the Arizona Apaches Postcard

I ran across this great postcard in an estate sale photo album find.  I just knew I needed to share it with y'all.  Who hasn't heard of Geronimo!?  Geronimo would pass away in less than two years after this postcard was mailed.

(written on the front):  "This is the old chief they keep guarded.  Tell mama & sister to write.  Love Aunt Helen."  

It just seems like a cold statement for the hard life this man lived trying to defend his land.  He lost his mother, wife and children in 1858 to Mexican soldiers.   In 1886, Geronimo surrendered to U. S. authorities.  As a prisoner of war, he became a big attraction.  He was said to have regretted his surrender because the terms were never met.
