Photo/text mashup

I’ve done these off and on for a long time. This one is probably 20 years old. A friend of mine found a big bag of family photographs sitting out on the sidewalk one day. Some of them dated back to the 1930’s in eastern Europe. They showed women posing in bathing suits at a beach and men with fedoras looking straight at the camera.

This is one of those photos. I’ve wondered many times what would make someone throw out this extensive collection. The only story that makes sense is that whoever had them was the last of the family and no one was left to want them. Well, I did.
