  1. Very cool pics, thanks for sharing. I could rummage through old photos all day long...........

  2. Such very marvelous shots! I especially adore the one of the gals soaking up the sun on balcony at the University of Kansas - it reminds me of me and some of my friends doing that on balconies as kids in the 90s.

  3. Thank you, I have to say my favourite is the one of the two girls facing each other(via Nite's tripper photostream on flickr) apparently it comes from a photo album that belonged to a man who served in the United States Marine Corps during the early 1930's. The album allegedly contained photographs of girlfriends, acquaintances, and prostitutes from Thailand, the Philippines, and the United States.
    Those two girls look as if they're up to no good :)
