I had to laugh at myself a little bit today. I came across this photograph and didn’t even notice that there were people in it until I had already scanned it:
What I had focused on, of course, were the chairs all jumbled up in the back of the room. The picture looks to have been taken in the ’70s but those chairs are far older–probably not original equipment but still pretty old. The typewriter I noticed next. Also old. It didn’t occur to me until just now to wonder what on earth was going on here and why these young ladies were photographed in a room full of outdated equipment. That’s almost certainly unanswerable but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if some of those chairs were still floating around somewhere. In fact I have a couple of ideas about where one might look.
Bonus: I’m going to be out of town for a few days. I might miss a day or two here but then again I might not.
