The title of this old photograph - which comes from the Flickr Commons stream of the National Archives of Estonia - is "Eveline Maydell making a silhouette, with her models. Indianapolis 1931" Eveline Adelheid von Maydell (1890 - 1962) was a German-born silhouette artist who lived in the USA from 1922 onwards. She was described as being ambidextrous : a Milwaukee newspaper article from 1942 said "she sketches and designs with her left hand and with her right snips with minute scissors the silhouettes..." Sepians also need to be ambidextrous - composing words with their left hand whilst assessing old images with their right - and we invite you to contribute all these skills to your contributions for Sepia Saturday 255. Just post your post on or around Saturday 22 November and then (unlike some idiot who forgot last week) link the post to the Sepia Saturday Linky List below. What could be easier than that. Before you start snipping away, take a look at what is to come in the weeks ahead.
I'm pretty stumped on coming up with a photo. But, I can rise to the challenge with SNIPS of paper that my mother had collected in the family treasure box of memories.
This doesn't have a date but in researching I found that bacon for 79 cents would have been mid 1960s.
RE was replaced by 73 in the late 60s and my parents had their 73 phone number until they passed away in 1990.
Other codes I remember are 27 CR Crescent, 84 VI Victor, 68 MU Murray.
This is 1970.
