Simpler Times

I like old photographs.

Here are two I found on Shorpy – The 100- Year-Old Photo Blog.

Convent Postmistress: 1939

This photo reminds me of simpler times. My family is from these parts, and I can see

things in this photo that remind me of my childhood.

Daytona Beach: 1910

This is actually in Florida; but this photo reminds me of places in Louisiana too.

Daytona Beach, Florida, circa 1910. "South Ridgewood Avenue." Over the past century,

the trees have thinned and the traffic has thickened. View full size.
