Vintage Friday - Portraits in Front of Brick Walls

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/2739/brick_wall_east_village_vintage.jpg

Welcome to the first installment of Vintage Fridays.  Every Friday I will be posting vintage photos from my Grandparents' collection, along with some old city photos from the New York Public Library.

Today we're revisiting the family portraits taken in front of brick walls, which is apparently the most pleasing background that we can find here in the city (Just kidding, I love brick wall backgrounds!)  I fell in love with this photo above even though I have no idea who any of the children are.   I love the little coats and expressions.  I wish I could see their shoes.

My mom and her best friend Bernice.  Love the gloves and little purses.  My mom seems to be going through a Hasidic hair phase.
