Photo Number 605

This is another photo from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.  John thinks I am a great customer…and I probably am.

On the Delaware River

This one was marked “On the Delaware River.”  The elderly women are all dressed like my Grandmother used to dress in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s.  A cotton dress with the proper hose and shoes.

Did you notice that this group brought a box of Alka-Selzer?

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

  1. Ah, a photo from "close to home"!

    I wonder what has caught the attention of the two or three folks that are looking the other way! Maybe someone shouting, "Plop plop fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is!"

    The table has some real legs (too!) The "patio" looks pretty permanent - and there are sections of the river where folks can cross River Road (what else would they call it?) from their homes and sit on the short bluff on the river - and still be on their own property, such as in Yardley, PA. The Delaware Canal runs on the PA side of the river and the Delaware and Raritan (D&R) Canal runs on the New Jersey side and they both still have water in them.

    I am 99% sure this photo shows the PA side - the large culvert half hidden on the far right (and far side of the river) carries a creek under the D&R canal - placing this shot around Washington Crossing and Yardley, PA - a short distance upstream from Trenton, NJ.
