I pretty much stopped buying boxes of random slides a few years ago... they just became too expensive. But when I did buy them, I particularly hoped to find extra nice photos of landmarks all over the U.S.A., or bustling city scenes showing the way they were 50 years ago.
However, I learned that pictures of people living their humble lives could be pretty great too! Like this one, showing a woman grabbing a couple of brewskis from the fridge. I'm not sure why, but it's fun to see what else is in the old ice box. Lots of eggs! A can of whipped cream, olives, mayo, "brown and serve" rolls, maybe a box of candy, and a red can that is some Donald Duck product - probably not orange juice.
Promenade! Do si do! This next one is undated, but certainly from the 1950's. Right in the middle are Ann and Joe, dancing up a storm. I'll bet they went out every saturday, like my grandparents did into their 80's. Let's just give Ann and Joe the trophy right now!
