"Z" Perfect Day: Stereoviews A-Z







 

 

 

 

 

 

"A Bite at Last" (ca. 1890s)


"Calves Crossing the Stream" (ca. 1890s)


Still laughing at the last stereoview in the collection. I had to use a magnifying glass to read the fine print at the bottom. It really does say "calves."

And so . . . here we are . . . "Z" end of 26 nearly perfect days! Thank you Arlee and everyone else for making the A-Z possibleI cannot thank all of you enough for reading my blog and for your support and humor in comments. I loved your spunk and the many inspirational and  adventuresome posts you wrote. You made me laugh, you made me cry, and you made me think. I learned so much from you!! 

NOW for a good long nap!!!

  3. LOL, both of those pics show ladies' calves. Some people probably thought they were risque one hundred and twenty years ago. We've come a long way...

  10. Yet another fascinating stereoview, Sharon! I've enjoyed this soooo much (although I think I'd whack someone who called me a "calf"--or was the "calves" in this stereoview referring to the girls' exposed legs? I hope it's that.). Enjoy a break from blogging! Or are you going to dive right in with daily posts in May, too???
