Back Page - The Signs


Girl with no dogs sign

What makes them do it? Why do they pose next to signs? It's usually some attempt at humor probably. But then, sometimes it's just coincidence.

No Dogs Allowed

You know ... I think this is the SAME SIGN! From completely separate batches of found photographs. Even the shadows are in the same place.

Sometimes they pose in front of a sign just to prove that they were there ... wherever they were.

Again from completely separate batches of found photographs, but this is the NOT the same sign. It's just the same pose.

Back Page - The Sailor Tailored Fashion


Two uniforms

At the left is an actual sailor's uniform from WW2. Either the wide cape-like collar or the tied scarf/tie or both were adapted into women's fashions and some children's clothing about that time.

It was popular to say the least.

Below are a few examples.
