Sepia Saturday ~ 200th Edition



Look back & choose a favorite edition-

I've lost most of the early editions I participated in
when I moved my genealogy blog to blogger from wordpress. 

I really liked this one the best out of all the ones I have saved: 

March 2011



1902 Bogg Springs Camp, Arkansas 
Popular health resort, located in the Ozarks.
Famous for their spring water, said to heal all ills.
So many neat details in this photo.
Click here
for a brief history on the resort.


2nd Place would have to go to 
Dolls, Dolls, Dolls, 
January 2012


I think it is just adorable the way the girls have posed their 
dolls on the porch to be included in the photo. 
And of course, the family car  horse!

  8. I love everything about the house pic, especially the horse tied up on the side, and the mother in her poofy black dress. Do you think she was in mourning for someone?

  18. Marvelous old photos. I had to go back & check the one picture for the dolls. Guess I wasn't very observant at first glance. Interesting read about Bogg Springs. Sounds like a fun place.

  33. Hi There, Great photos... I always love seeing old photos like that... I remember how important those 'hot springs' always were in Arkansas for health problems (still are I guess)... AND--I love the way the family and the dolls (and horse) are all in the 2nd photo. Neat!
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  34. I so love old photos and so glad you shared!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Both excellent. That is a serious croquet pitch, too. On the 2nd photo I note that the house rests on a foundation of short logs on end. Dorthy's house got carried away to OZ with engineering like this.

    ReplyDelete
  36. A most perfect choice, great photos. My favorite is the last family photo, and the dolls in those fancy chairs too, I think wasn't something every little girl had back then. Very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wonderful old photos. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete

  40. These are great! I love collecting old family photos.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow, this is a wonderful posting. I like seeing all the older buildings and see how they put fancy decorations on the porch to make it look great rather than to look plain.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wonderful sepia photos. it is fun to look back in history and seee the homes, dress and toys used in that period.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lovin' those croquette mallets and the women playing with long dresses topped off with a hat...great pictures of a time gone by.

    ReplyDelete

  47. I really like both photos! They show two completely different scenes and themes! I think the second shot is so cool! I have wondered how much distress the "white" dresses caused by "keeping them clean."

    ReplyDelete

  62. By the way, these shots are totally amazing. I love taking a big magnifying glass and exploring the details in this sort of photo. I have a shot of my grandmother with a little girl who I always wondered who the little girl was... LOL, when I looked, it was a big doll. So rich in details are these shots that you have posted.
