This photo is from a small black album I got from my uncle Henry. It had a lot of small photographs that look like they were cut from a contact sheet. They were pasted on themed pages, a page for my father, a page for each of his siblings, a page for several close family friends, etc. The pages and pictures aren’t labeled. I hope my aunts can shed some light on who the people in the picture are and if it was taken at the Meadows near Detroit. Judging by the ages of the people I know in the album I think the photos were taken in the early 1940’s.

I do hope that you can find out who this couple is. It's such an interesting photo and the lady is beautiful. I love seeing the cars of that era.
A moment in history…couldn't be anywhen but the 1940's…
Don't you wish you knew the story to go with this photograph? Where had they been, where were they going, etc.? Do you know who these people are yet? It's a great photo!
I don't know yet. I will post here when i do.
It looks like a really large gathering at someone's farm.
It looked like a large and pretty necklace hanging around her neck but when I enlarged it, it looks like an interesting clasp to her very fashionable bolero.
On second look, it's not a bolero but a jacket ( I think ?) Whatever it is, it's very pretty and so is she.
I've been back several times to look at this wonderful candid photo. There is so much character in it–will be interested to know who they are!
I wanted you to know that I've enjoyed your blog enormously and have shared the Ancestor Approved award with you. Thanks for such great reads! http://nolichuckyroots.blogspot.com/2010/12/blogging-heaven-carnivals-calendars-and.html
(You're twice as good as everyone else, Kristin, but don't feel you need to do twice the work. I just couldn't pick one blog over the over!)
I always enjoy your posts,this one included. I hope you solve the mystery, but even if you don't it's a great picture.
I wish I'd just combined the blogs somehow! I always feel like I'm neglecting one or the other if I don't make equal posts.
I have found out who they are but not where it was. waiting to see if i get more information.
gorgeous picture that begs to reveal its mystery now. good luck!!
