Shooting Gallery, 1936-2009

Very cool:

In 1936, 16-year-old Ria van Dijk from Tilburg, Holland, fires a gun in a fairground shooting gallery. She hits the target, triggering a camera to take her portrait as a prize.

At the age of 88, Ria van Dijk still makes her annual pilgrimage to the Shooting Gallery.

Here she is in 1936:

There are 31 photos in the posted collection, and it’s interesting to see how she looks like she’s the same and only the spectators and background has changed in many of them.
