Old Photos - Every Picture Tells a Story

Some photos don’t need captions. They speak for themselves. Here are several old photos which came my way via my wife, Sue, who got them in an e-mail from a friend. I have captioned them minimally, so as not to ruin the stark beauty, and mystery, displayed in these photos. This one above is Miss Philadelphia of 1924.

Belva Annan, the murderess whose story became the basis for the musical “Chicago.”

Maude Allen, dancer, seductress and German spy in World War One.

Charlie Chaplin with Helen Keller.

Civil War veterans at Gettysburg in 1913.

Sacajawea. She was kidnapped and was also was the guide for Lewis and Clark in 1805. Traveling with her husband Toussaint Charbonneau, she carried her son, Jean Baptiste, on her back.

 Amelia Earhart, getting ready to go down, rather than up.

Queen Elizabeth meeting Marilyn Monroe. They were both 30 years old at the time.

Geraldine Doyle, the original “Rosie the Riveter.”
