Most Saturday mornings Terry and I go to a flea market in Newport, N.C., that is close to where we live. For the past 2 to 3 weeks I have seen the same guy with "antique" glass cases full of stuff out of a table in the bright and hot sun. I had glanced in the cases and noticed a couple of old photos. With this being the third week and them being in the sun, I was concerned the bright light and the heat would ruin these pictures.
Obviously they are not loved or appreciated and I don't know a thing about them. There are no names or dates on them. No way to begin looking for their missing relatives like one of my favorite blogs Forgotten Old Photos. (She's in my list but I don't know how to add her here. Terry.... help!)

Again, there are no names, nothing written on the back. Engraved ever so faintly at the bottom of the border is Linebeck and under that is Winston, N.C.
I did find: William E. Lineback, wife Grace, owner "The Gift Shop", residence Jarvis
Court Piedmont Ave, West End, Winston, NC.
Lineback & Edwards Photography 103 1/2 West 4th St Winston,NC.
This listing was from 1913 Winston-Salem City Directory. That doesn't tell us anything about this pretty lady and I seriously doubt there's a way to find out anything.
I guess I should put them in an envelope that says " I have no idea who these people are but they are not relatives" so my daughters are not wondering, down the road, "Who the heck are they?" We have enough pictures of relatives we don't know to add these into the mix.
