Album - Gloria and the Amateur Photographer

Here is a glamorous girl we shall call Gloria. She appears in at least 30 of the pictures in this set, all found together.

Gloria seems to have had some modeling experience. She strikes typical pin-up, calendar-girl poses.

The photographer was a little less experienced. His shots have light leaks, background interference and framing problems. Many of these shots had to be cleaned up a great deal.

This set was found in Norman, Oklahoma.

Here is another girl who appears in many of the photographs in this set. She is named "Janice" in the inscription on this photograph.

Gloria and Janice

Girl on car trunk

The photographs in this set were all found together. Most of them seem connected.

In general, connections are made in a number of ways. Some simply have the same people in them. Others have similar photo finisher marks or imprints. Some are connected only by the format and size of the photograph paper. Some might have identification on the reverse, same names or handwriting or ink color. Similar aging, photo mounts or glue marks can tie some together.

Sometimes a photograph seems to have no connection to the others except that it was found with the batch. There are a few like that in this set. They are included here anyway, just in case.

There will be 61 photographs in this set. See if you can spot Janice and "Gloria" in them.

THE KIDS Lesson one. It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
