Here A Cluck, There A Cluck

Old McDonald appears to have taken the day off and has sent his wife out to feed the chickens. Chicken wings were invented shortly thereafter. The photo is probably from the 1910's.

Go Tigers!

My beloved Detroit Tigers have a chance to win the World Series!
I have been a fan for almost 40 years. A victory would put the cap on a magical season. The photo is from the 1940's.

Murray Trac

The little girl doesn't seem very enthused to be sitting on this great Murray pedal tractor. I had one similar to it when I was a kid. I love the metal porch chair as well the folding chairs complete with beer bottles under them! The photo is from the 1950's.

This "sly dog" plays poker with his buddies when no one is home. I imagine the photographer was an attractive woman thus eliciting his wink. The photo is from the 1950's.

Victory Garden Harvest Show

Due to food rationing during World War II many people grew a "Victory Garden." The photo appears to show the "cream of the crop." Note all the old fruit jars.

Where Is This?

Does anyone know where this photo was taken? The building just to the right of center is very unusual and may aid in identification. The photo appears to be from the 1940's.

Thanks to MikeM for identifying the building just to the left of center in the photograph as the Tanner Fireproof Warehouse, Moving and Storage Company which was located on 3rd Avenue in Detroit, Michigan.
