For today's "Anything Goes Saturday" I am presenting a mix of images from the U.S!
This young lady is enjoying a visit to Prairie Dog Town, Texas. Who knew that prairie dogs used conestoga wagons! It's still around too, much to my surprise. From what I can glean off the interwebs, Prairie Dog Town is in Lubbock, and was established in the 1930's. ; you can "... marvel at the cute critters with their intricate tunnels and listen to their unique bark that gave them the name Prairie Dog." It was recently named the 5th most popular tourist attraction in Lubbock. What are the other 4? I have no idea!
I really love this 1956 photo of a mother and two boys marveling at the beauty of the city of Miami and Biscayne Bay. As one might imagine, the skyline has changed considerably in the intervening 56 years. About the only structure I could easily identify that is still there is the tower to the right, the "News Tower" (home of the Miami Daily News back then), which was built in 1925, and is now known as the "Freedom Tower".
Here's another wonderful photo, featuring a happy trio on their way to Catalina island. I especially like the gentleman's style! I am guessing that the picture was taken around 1950.
