Photo Number 200
I chose this photo today, it was probably taken in the 1960's. The era of the shaggy rug that lots of the photographers used in their baby photo shoots. You still had to take your child into a Photographers Studio to have this photo taken..this was before photographers came into the local malls or K-Mart to get as many young mothers to bring their children in for the 99cent specials. These were not really specials, you got one photo for 99 cents..the others cost you. I always tried to take the girls in for the specials, I don't think they ever went into a studio to have their picture taken professionally until their Graduation photographs.
Photography certainly has come a long way! Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
We can date this photo 1953 or 1954 most likely.
Abra had good luck finding Nancy Jean, I have her phone number and I left a message for her this evening..she lives in Illinois. Hopefully she will call me back. I try not to scare these people half to death.."Hi I found your photo in an Antique shop..."
Update: June 30, 2010 I left another message on her cell phone..we discovered her name is Nancy Jean Ensrud Butler. I case someone happens by this post while searching for a name..contact me through my email address in my profile:)
