Found Photo Friday: Memories of a Marvelous Evening at Club Bali

Uncategorized

This week’s found photo takes us back to the 1940s in Miami, Florida. Club Bali was a Polynesian-themed nightclub located at Biscayne Boulevard and 8th St. The entertainment featured two live orchestras with three shows nightly.

A souvenir photo could be purchased at the club as a memento of your visit in “Miami’s Most Glamorous Atmosphere.”

This well-dressed party of three appears to be either starting or ending their marvelous evening.

Found Photo Friday: Out With The Old…In With the New

Color Transparency

Found Photo Friday finally returns with one of my favorite series of photos.

These two images were taken on Thornwood Avenue in Wilmette, Illinois. You can see the houses across the street on Google Street View.

The first photo, taken in the Fall of 1964, shows a woman and her daughter standing in drab weather, next to the family’s old, rusted 1955 Cadillac.

The second photo is much sunnier. Taken in the Spring of 1965, the woman is adorned with spring colors and gets a chance to show her new pride and joy, a 1965 Pontiac.
