Found in an antique store in central Texas. They're a long way from home. According to census records, they lived in western Pennsylvania and New York. There's nothing written on the photo other than their names on the back, so I don't know where this was taken.

Because no scene is exciting enough without various aircraft randomly pasted all over the sky.
Found in an antique store. I fixed some spots, and scratches in the original image. Handwritten on the back "Katie Henning". It's nice to see a cabinet card portrait from that era with a pleasant expression instead of the usual solemn stare.

This photo is of my father Donald’s parents which would also be my Grandparents. I don’t know her Maiden name. They are both buried in Schwenksville Pennsylvania. They lived as a married couple in a house in Graterford Pennsylvania. They are pictured at Green Lane Park in Pennsylvania which was a popular place to swim and go boating. You can no longer swim there.

A photo of the Mahoning Drive-In located at Lehighton Pennsylvania which was built in 1948 and began playing films in 1949. Drive-ins were the premier way to view movies during the 1950s. Sound was played either through wired speakers which you would put on your car door, or via a radio (FM) frequency. There were over 4,000 of them in the 1950s whereas less than 300 remain today. The Mahoning drive-in recently gathered attention due to director Alexander Minnelli’s documentary “At The Drive-In” which highlights how the residents of Lehighton and the surrounding areas donated their time and money to keep the drive-in running. The Mahoning Drive-In was initially operated by local James Humphries where up to 500 cars (later on up to 600 cars!) could park and watch films on the big screen from the comfort of their cars. The drive-in is running strong today - open from May through Septembers playing 35mm film prints on weekends - and now has room for 900 cars, plays audio via 89.3 FM radio, has a screen measuring 120 feet wide, and they offer overnight passes where movie goers can watch a feature film and stay overnight.
Found in an antique store. Handwritten on back "M. S. Goodhart, Newville, Pa." I'm guessing from Mary's dress that the photo was taken in the 1880s?

On the back it says "Photographed by L. K. Bair, Newmanstown, Pa.". There's a word written in pencil that might be their family name, but I can't quite make it out.
