Photo Hunt... Old Fashioned


I took these photos almost three years ago. These was taken when we had Peach Days Celebration. Peach Days is being celebrated every first week of September by the native residents here in the City where we live and this celebration means that they are thankful of the peach abundance here our city. It's fun and a lot of things to see on the parade during the morning. There are also a lot of booths where you can buy some souvenirs and foods to eat. And in these photos that i showed above, these are some of the native residents that work in a farm and these old women are farmer's wives wearing very old fashioned clothing.

Ooh, perfect indeed! I didn't even think about this time period - and I live about 45 miles from Silver Dollar City (which is an amusement park with an 1800's theme!)

Welcome to Saturday Photo Hunt!

Liza said...

Great shots Darlene. Those are truly old fashioned.

Eve said...

I recognize a bunch of DUP's (Daughters of the Utah Pioneers) when I see them. Most of them are old-fashioned without the period costumes. I have in my lifetime eaten peaches from Brigham City many times. However, it was the cherries that always sent us south.
