Going Camping


Doesn’t this lady look like she loved camping?  I wonder what year this is…if I were guessing, I’d say 1940’s or early 50’s. Look at the car in the background.  I also wonder who snapped the photo? I found this picture on this website:  http://restyledhome.blogspot.com/   

I emailed this blogger and she told me to go ahead and use the photo.  She also told me that she found the original photo on www.squareamerica.com  Oh my! You must check this site out.  It is a source of vintage snapshots and vernacular photography.  There are some really horrible photos there.
