Photo Number 537

This is a snapshot from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.

June 1952 DL Antiques

Looks like someone was to Hawaii and brought back shirts and lei’s for the older boys.  The poor little girl only got a lei.

That old clothes line pole certainly needs straightening.  I am reminded in these old photos that the grass in the lawn was only cut a couple of times a year.  We used to cut our grass with one of the old whirly bladed push was hard to push in long grass. If the grass was too long, we raked it up and threw it over the fence to the cows.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. Clever.
    Love that bunch.
    Didn't want to pose but did anyway...

  2. This one is so cute. Very nice family. Ahh old days :)

  3. That is a charming photo! The missus looks happy that Daddy is home - and the little girl is cute shyly hiding behind the lei.

    Looks like this was Fordville, North Dakota... out beyond Grand Rapids. There are not many Fordville's around.

  4. I follow your other blog, but was just directed here by another follower. I love it! I started collecting old photos just last year so this is very interesting to me.

  5. It's funny that there are lawn fads. They weren't too concerned about theirs. You're right about Dad. He's not really into the whole picture thing.

  6. I love your site!! I did something similar and was wondering if you can tell me the best way to find the owners of these - where to post? thanks in advance for any advice you can give me!!

  7. Looking at each one, they have something on their mind. Mum is most focused on having the family together, and has the smile to prove it. Thanks for sharing!
