Please post the link, I couldn't find it!
It's not unusual to walk in a graveyard in the USA and see these. They are especially common in Jewish cemeteries. More:
Both died in a plane crash in the 40s.

What a terrific thread! I've managed to spend way too much time this morning looking at all these wonderful photos. lol Thank you all for sharing them!
I've got more "everyday people" pics, but not enough time to post more than one at the moment. Here's my maternal grandmother (front center) in the late 1930s with her two sisters (back row white blouse and back row striped blouse on right). The other girls are her cousins... and the skinny little dog is apparently Skippy. Back of the photo reads "Grand Girls and Skippy." They do look like grand girls, don't you think?
Amy Jeanne - Those gravestone portraits are fascinating. I've never seen any in the cemeteries I've visited. They really bring the name on the stone to life, er, well, you know what I mean. Btw, I love the photo of the woman with the little banjo and the poofy bob!
Cherry Lips - Yes! I'm with you on those portraits bringing Laura Palmer's homecoming queen photo to mind!
that's a great photo, cherrybubbles - and I think I can see a family resemblance!
lol lol lol lol
I had no idea what that picture was of.
Its a generally accepted thing in Eastern European countries to have a picture...either carved into the stone (older) or placed under glass....on tombstones.
That is part of why over here it is more common in Jewish Cemeteries or ones used by Eastern Europeans, even generations removed from being immigrants.
I'm fascinated by those -- they aren't common here, probably because they wouldn't stand up well under the long winters, but I have seen a few on recent graves. Apparently the idea of illustrated gravestones is coming back into style.
They fascinate me too...
My family, being the equivalent of Slavic Quakers....don't have these....and I am always in awe when I get to go see places that do have them.
They had coffee breaks then, too

Is that Miss Joeri in the very back?
I bet that coffee was gerrrd.
You know it. Also, that schmutz on their aprons was not really there - it's on the print.

This girl reminds me of our Inky!
I love the finger-to-chin pose!
I like her hair. I like hair that looks hard and fake.
