Photo Number 780

This is a snapshot  from the antique shop in Park Rapids Minnesota.

Lady with a baby PR antiques

A Granmotherly looking older woman with a baby.  She has a long skirt, at least it looks long.  The grass is long also and her wash is hug out on the line.  The house looks like it has lots of windows.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. Looks like the trees were "just planted" too - so I would suspect the houses in the photo are new ones.

    It seems like in a lot of older photos - the grass is towering high. When did "we" get obsessed with keeping our lawns trim and tidy?

    I say "we" because I'm not so obsessed with it myself, LOL!

  2. I was thinking the same as the comment above about grass!

  3. I was wondering the same thing. I think they might have taken a scythe to it once in awhile but that was about it. As a society, I think we don't have enough to do it seems. What's that saying..."idle hands are the work of the devil"? I think that is true. All my relatives "back in the day" worked hard. There was little time for being bored. Now, people are searching for that feeling of satisfaction and have to go to extreme lengths to get it mowing their lawn in fancy patterns! LOL!
