Weekly Photo Challenge: 50 years or older


I love finding antiques in a store or old pictures when sorting through things or antiques while out driving through the back roads.

Saw this in front of an old mercantile store in Scott, Arkansas

My grandma showed me a picture of her and my grandpa taken many years ago. What a beautiful couple.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Object


Not many young people know what the item I’m holding in the picture is. Though I’ll be 35 in a few months, I know exactly what it is, and it’s purpose. These days it’s hard to find records, unless you go to an antique store. It’s even harder to find parts for your old record player too. The item I’m holding is a 45 adapter – it sits in the center hole of a 45 singles record, so that you can place it on your record turnstile and play the record.

That’s my Mother’s name written all over the 45 adapter. As you can see, it belongs to her.
