A NOT SO DRY RUN TODAY......A WW1 MARINE FAMILY ALBUM

Fresh from the crate: the WW1 photo album ,with its unusual locally made bark and leather cover .....

Hawaiian camping trip 1917......

Ol' timey music ......

Young marine and best friend....

A marine/navy family. love the matching outfits....

Most of the pictures date from 1917/ 1919......

WW1 pictures of denims are rare to say the least ,as guys would rather have their pictures taken while proudly wearing their uniforms.Note the pull over 2 pockets shirt....

1918 Honolulu.......Note the collarless pull over shirt......
Dad in his summer marine uniform......
Marine back from overseas ,a nice family portrait...


It was a beautiful day today in SF and for once ,it felt like spring was kicking in .What started as a lame day at the flea market, ended with an unusual find .what's so unusual about a family album you might say!? ,well considering the fact that more and more people are sorting old vintage albums to sale pictures on ebay ,finding a complete and unmolested one dating from ww1 is indeed unusual....This marine / navy family settle in Honolulu back in 1917 after the father's return from overseas .The entire album covers a period ranging from 1917 to 1919.Just selected some of my personal favorites and will most definitely post some more soon ........
