Vintage Photos - eBay Set #1 (157-160)

See the previous post in this series here.

I made some impulse buys after getting a new scanner and picked up a huge batch of slides a while back. These pictures span from as early as the late 1940s to as late as the early 1990s. These were from Goodwill and eBay (sometimes via estate sales). There are many thousands of these slides. I will be scanning some from time to time and posting them here for posterity.

This set continues a batch of slides that I bought on eBay a while back. I don't have as much to go on as to the ultimate origin of these compared to the previous batch I was working on. They came to me from eBay and most likely were picked up at an estate sale by the seller. Most of them seem to be taken in the 1960s and same individuals are included in many of the photos. It looks like there are some that were taken in Miami and some that were taken in New Jersey and perhaps elsewhere. I get the impression that Miami was a vacation spot for this family.

The first photo was processed in January 1969 and features the older couple commonly seen in this set along with kids that I assume to be their grandchildren.

The second photo was processed in August 1966 and features two older ladies. It looks like they are on vacation somewhere, probably in or near Miami, Florida.

The third photo was processed in December 1968 and shows a birthday celebrant blowing out his candles. I can almost make out the name on the cake. Carl maybe?

The last photo was processed in January 1969. There are lots of Christmas decorations around but based on the attire this looks like a New Year's Eve party to me. So depending on the timing, my guess is that this picture was taken on December 31st, 1968 or perhaps shortly after midnight on January 1st, 1969.
