Winter In Wisconsin
Yet another example of a dealer cutting up a photo album for fun and profit! I hate it!
Well, now that I've got that off my chest....I had some problems getting a good, centered scan on the two individual pictures. So, to help out, the caption on the left photo, "How do you like the "Pepsodent" smile? It's just to keep warm. Temp. 20 below zero. Some fun! Come to "sunny" Wis for your winter vacation!!??" Both excited and questioning at the same time. She must be confused. No doubt caused by the extreme cold. Down hill or cross country skis? Which would be a colder sport?
And the other photo..."The right figure is the leaning tower pose. Alias Hampton Purdy." It's such a unique name that I decided to give a quick Google search just to see what's to see. I found two Hampton Purdys on Ancestry.com. R. Hapton Purdy, born 1890 in Canada, in 1930, residing in Appleton, Outagamie County, Wisconsin. And Hampton R. Purdy, born 1917, also residing in Appleton. Father and son would be my guess. I'm thinking the photo is the son. Of course, once Ancestry.com asked for a credit card number, my research into Purdy, father and son, ended.
