Old fashioned photohunt

I was surprised when i started looking for old fashioned pictures that i could not readily think of many because I think of my self as an old fashioned type of person in ways---- , My first Thought was to do this cute picture of my MIL in this old
fashioned tin punch type frame she was the sweetest person and this is so cute of her as a little girl in the 1930's


My hubby suggested my train station clock that is definitely old fashioned but I have had it on my blog before ...


so... I decided i would put my pickle barrel I have had it myself about 15 years and was assured it was authentic when I bought it from an individual who looked old enough to know --- I am not sure why I love this so much but I do.

Those are all great shots! Really neat representations of old fashioned... they just don't make stuff like that anymore.

I have a thing about old picture and we have quite a few of them around but I don't know who they area.
But now I'm starting to put stuff on the back of them.

These are fabulous!
I love the pickle barrel! Looks like a wine barrel. What is the difference? is it as big as a wine barrel?

I like all your old-fashioned shots. Did people make a lot of pickles because the barrel is so big.

Thanks for visiting mine.
