I found this photograph when I went to my local post office to drop off some mail. As I was checking my p.o. box like I always do, I saw this sitting on the counter.  Before I picked it up, I looked around and waited for a few minutes to see if anyone would come back for it, but no one did. This means, unfortunately, I have no identifying information for the photo but for someone as obsessed with old photographs as I am, this one’s just awesome.

Submitted by Eden Hemming (Tulsa, OK).

**Curator’s note: While there’s no identifying information, this photograph screams 1970s funk to me - from the woman’s Afro, halter top, and platform shoes to the little boy’s driving hat (perhaps a Kangol?). Also, it’s heartbreaking to me that this gorgeous photo was lost in the juggle of  everyday errands - if anyone recognizes the subjects in the photo, please let them (and me) know!
