I am not good at dating photos by clothing yet so any help is appreciated. I found this family in a box of photos at a 2011 Lancaster, Ca Flea Market, the guy gave it to me as a freebie because of the top torn off. I was quite happy as it was my favorite in the batch, the woman called out to me. Isnt she gorgeous? Every detail about her is elegant. I love her boots most of all and would have loved to have seen her walking around in them, Im sure she moved with grace. She is also a timeless beauty, her looks could fit in today.
Now the poor man of the family, hmmm what happened to him? Was he torn off on purpose so as to not have to see him anymore?
Or was he just tossed from box to box and handled too many times over the years and tear away only to be misplaced as just a head in another box or blown away in the wind?
The children all perfect yet seriously posed, the older little girl with her bigger feet, which I had as a kid, my brother called mine “skis”.
There is no place listed and it was made as a postcard, in writing on the back it says “Fraser Family” just wish I had a state, would be of a major help. But for now we have lovely Mrs. Fraser with her kids to enjoy looking at.
These other photos came from one booth at the same swap meet, and my guess is they may have all come from the same family, mainly because a few have a modern plastic insert placed in the sleeves to cover the photos for protection and were paper clipped at the sides.
Here we have Corporal Howard

This Baby Picture has no markings but wherever it was kept, someone used the sleeve for scribbling notes as there is pencil writing all over it. So this photo was constantly in reach to be seen. It appears names and addresses were jotted on it, not sure that any are of this child. Scribblings I can make out say….

Lastly we have this young woman standing next to a car on a residential street. Looks like California with the Palm Trees. And is that her hat on the ground? This photo came out of the same box as the first torn family photo.
