Photo Number 754

When I was at the Antique Mall in Detroit Lakes the other day I found a perfect New Years photo.

I have never seen a magnum of champagne before..is it just a larger than normal bottle?  These ladies seem overjoyed..I wonder who has his glass or is he just going to sip out of the bottle?

Happy New Years Day!  Hopefully we will have another great year here on Forgotten Old Photos.  Thank you for reading and for your comments:)

Fabulous!....by the way these two ladies are dressed I would say this photo was taken in 1932 or possibly 1933, Prohibition was not repealed until December 1933....so, if I am correct, these guys would have been indulging in an illicit drink! Prohibition had become so unpopular during its final days that even this respectable, middle aged trio was happy to photograph their merry lawbreaking. 

P.S. A magnum is 2.5X the size of a standard bottle

  2. Maybe he is doing the rounds of his garden which has other people waiting with a glass and a smile. Your blogs are great and allow our imaginations to go wild.
    I want to wish you and your lovely family and Chance a wonderful New Year. See you tomorrow.

  5. This photo reminds me of an article by Lisa Alzo, about her Polish family. I think it was in the magazine Family Chronicle a few months ago. The outfits are so similar. Sorry I don't have more detail for you.

    I love your website, by the way!
    Happy New Year!
