ThriftyGypsy
(100 items)

Good morning fellow collectors ! I am changing my posting photo to better reflect my ThriftyGypsy name ! I thought I would give some back ground on this photo, since it has very special meaning to me ! I received this from my mother before she passed away in 2006. It is one of the few items I have related to my families past. I will try and take more photos without the glare, and some of the back. It has the "bubble" glass covering, and the photo almost looks like a drawing, not sure. Hopefully someone on here will be able to identify it, ( I'm sure !). I am not sure of the date. This photo is of my Grandmother's mother, (on the right), her mothers brother, (on the left), and her grandmother in the background. My grandmother passed away in the mid 90's at the age of 85, so I know it is pretty old. My mother's people were from Serbia and my grandmother still had some of her accent. I was always told that some of her relatives were gypsys. She loved to cook old style dishes for me when I visited. I will try and post more info later. I have this hanging in the den, where my daughter used to visit with her boyfreinds when she was a teenager. I always told them they were being watched, I did not worry too much about them, lol ! Thanks for looking and letting me share this story, ThriftyGypsy

    It is a photograph taken in the early 20th century. As with any photograph, enlargements lose details, and the solution was to paint or chalk in the details that were lost during the process.

    I would date your photograph to about 1910- 1920.

    Be sure to note the information about the subjects on the back, so it stays with the image.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Scott

    Thanks scottvez for the like and the information on this photo. That explains why some of the photo is marked, and other parts aren't. I also appreciate the date, and I will definitely put the information on the back of this photo when I get home today (had not thought of that!) ! Thanks again, ThriftyGypsy

    What a treasure. Do you think the pictures were hand tinted? Mich
  5. ThriftyGypsy ThriftyGypsy, 2 years ago
    Thanks michelleamieux for the love ! AR8Jason says in his post that they are hand tinted. That seems to be the consensus. That is why I have asked all of the experts to check it out for me. That is one of the great things about our site, you can find someone that knows just about everything on anything ! Thanks for stopping by ! ThriftyGypsy

    I have tried to write you three times, but the pewter keeps crashing on this page, don't know why...

    All right, I got that one through. This picture takes my imagination to the real fields of the "wizard of Oz", and that one of those ladies is Auntie 'Em!! LOVE SUPER LOVE this photo!! I wanted to say...DOH, I was not following the posts. AR8Jason is a mental treasure amidst all these visual treasures. I wanted to ask you AR8, I have posted a photo by Harold A. Taylor. He was turn of the century and was an early innovator of "colorized" film. His idea did not get picked up, but I wonder if the photo I have is one of his early "Colorized" film, rather than tinted. He had a studio in Coronado called the Three Arrows Studio, where he worked on film, and his bread and butter were architectural photos. Could you see what you think?? I appreciate the time you put in to help others. In any case, he is an interesting character whose invention may have brought around "color film" much earlier, but he did not get discovered?? Or no infrastructure existed to develop them at that time?? It is a SoCal Eucalyptus scene. Thank you, as always, Gypsy, Love your family, Mich

    Thanks michelleamieux for the super love !!!, and thanks for the nice comments. My grandmother's grandmother (middle lady), definitely looks like the serious type, maybe even a little scary ! Hopefully you can find some information on your photo. You might need to contact AR8Jason directly, in case he does not see this message. He will definitely know something about your item ! Thanks for stopping by, ThriftyGypsy
  18. ThriftyGypsy ThriftyGypsy, 2 years ago
    Hey AR8Jason, You do deserve the compliments ! You are on here non stop it seems like, always sharing your knowledge with others. You go above and beyond the call of duty, and I always read your comments no matter what the subject ! And just for the record, I would like to say to anyone on here, no, we are not related!!! lol. Looking forward to working with you on these mysteries in the future ! ThriftyGypsy

    As the "wizard of Oz" was a dream, perhaps the lady on the left is Auntie "em, the middle lady the architype for the "Wicked Witch", and the boy, well...he is Dorothy's older brother. I love this photo, it makes the imagination reel!! Mich
