>What Real People Wore- Down at the Dock in the Mid 1930s


 Here’s a trio of fun photographs from probably the mid 1930s that I thought you might like. This set of photos is more of the fun-loving group I’ve shared in other photographs in the past.  Here we’ve got some gals in trousers, a couple of guys with rolled up shirtsleeves, and the mom in a more dressy and a bit earlier dress.  From the styles pictured I’d date these to around 1935-36.  Aren’t they fun?  You know I love the overalls, so I included a closer enlarged shot of the girl and guy waving in the last shot so you can get a better view of the pocket detail.  I also love the girl in the giant hat.
Looks like the lake is a bit dry, but neat to know it didn’t stop their fun!
Hope you’re having a great week so far!

    >I'm entirely with you on the overalls – I just love 'em! If I had a pair, I'd wear them all the time.

    >Glad you all like these :DMiss Amelina, I have no idea! I got a slew of photos from the same family at an antique store, but there has been nothing written on most of them! Too bad, they look like a fun group and I would have liked to know more about them.
