The girl’s clearly from a wealthy family. My she looks young to be out on her own with a driver. Her face says to me that this isn’t out of the ordinary.

Today the photo prompt inspired me to look through Flickr Commons for photos of welders.

I actually would like to learn to weld. I’ve heard that women often make good welders.

I wonder whether these folks were Russians living in Australia or were visiting Australia from Russia. There wasn’t much information.

Women and cars, cars with character. I was just lamenting to a friend how cars seem to resemble each other and how there’s little variation. I’m saddened that the new version of the VW Bug is to be no more. So I’m looking for cars with charm and character.

Now I’d be worried about driving in a small car surrounded by so many SUVs.

This week I’m inspired to find some equine photos. How were horses used way back when? Let’s see what I found on Flickr Commons.

I thought 1920 was rather late for such transport.

That’s not a typo on my part. Check the source. It says this photo of a horse & Richmond Ice wagon is from 1958.
