I'm afraid that the cultural reference to "The Little Rascals" will be lost on the uninitiated.


Blogger lintmag said ... (12:02 AM) : 

Little boys in ties! Is that even possible anymore at ANY time? Great photo - is his friend still around? Would love to see a picture of them now.

I have yet to see a submission for the Vintage Photo Contest that I haven't loved, but I think this just stole the spot for my favorite! "Uncle Matt is the one with the shiner." Priceless.

Hannibal, Missouri 1925? There's no one of those kids didn't know my grandpa.


Blogger Matheus said ... (11:13 AM) : 

my grandpa used to wear the same kind of outfit... he stopped wearing the socks two years ago and the doctor made him wear more confortable shoes, but I guess he'll never give up the hat.

nice picture... I wish I could watch a game of these rascals...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:32 PM) : 

Thanks for sharing this great old photo. My 11 yo son is currently sporting a shiner as impressive as your Uncle Matt's and he is a little rascal too - would laugh out loud to see him dressed like this. This photo made my day.


Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (10:06 PM) : 

Great pic! They are adorable, wonder when we will see these boy knickers back in style?


Blogger Prutha said ... (12:30 AM) :

Blogger scarebaby said ... (2:29 AM) : 

My family is from the same part of Missouri - my dad was born in 1925 near Hannibal - and this picture is so very evocative for me. Thanks for sharing it!

You really brought the soul back to your blog with this touching and thoughtful initiative. Bravo Scott.


Blogger Little Lovables said ... (10:15 AM) : 

so adorable! love how classy they are with the ties for a game. that is one massive black eye, still looks so happy though, he was probably proud of it!


Blogger jeffrey said ... (1:03 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:25 PM) : 

Those pants/shorts are actually knickers.knickerbackers. I know I wore them too. Back in the day (an expression I hate and will never use again!)


Blogger Alisa said ... (1:46 PM) : 

This is a fantastic photo!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:50 AM) : 

I love that they are wearing neck ties to play baseball.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:50 PM) : 

oh no, i hope none of my relatives gave matt a black eye! my dad grew up in hannibal. his parents loved the river so much and would always send us catfish. my grandma would pick wild mushrooms and batter and fry them... what i would give to taste those again! and, of course, i was fascinated by the stories of mark twain and we had a tour through the cave when i was a kid - expecting injun joe to jump out at anytime.

amazing how much a single image can hold... reminds me of roland barthes camera lucida. "The book develops the twin concepts of studium and punctum: studium denoting the cultural, linguistic, and political interpretation of a photograph, punctum denoting the wounding, personally touching detail which establishes a direct relationship with the object or person within it."
