1920s Snapshot. Private Collection.

This precious little girl is accompanied by daddy most likely, and maybe her uncle. In her adorable little boots she’s wearing a coat with fur collar and sleeves. The bonnet is so cute! The gent to the left is posing with confidence, the other one has pins on his lapel and you can see the hatted photographer’s shadow on the sidewalk. In the background a car’s passing by, and on the building a sign reads “The End” but I cannot make out the smaller letters -probably a store closing. And all those sturdy telephone poles giving this picture some depth…What a snapshot is all about: a slice of everyday life forever frozen in time.
